Lok Sabha adjourned till Thursday amid ruckus over Pegasus controversy

 The Lok Sabha proceedings has been adjourned till Thursday after the Opposition created a disturbance over Pegasus controversy.

Opposition members of both the houses of the Parliament submitted adjournment notices to discuss the issue.

Congress and the Trinamool, started raising slogans and showing placards to attack the government on the snooping issue as soon as the House met for the day at 11 am.

The proceedings lasted for barely five minutes.

The placards read shows while people are suffering from unemployment, the government is busy with “jasoosi” (spying).

Trinamool Congress (TMC) members alleged that party MP and CM  Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee’s phone number was selected for surveillance.

Since the pandemic began, three sessions of Parliament were curtailed while the winter session last year had to be cancelled.
