Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu lashed out at the MPs who staged a protest today demanding an apology over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's alleged comments that his predecessor Manmohan Singh is colluding with Pakistan.
He angrily responded to the disruptive Congress MPs saying that nobody will be giving an apology and said that PM Modi did not make his allegations in Parliament and hence no apology was required.
The Prime Minister had said in an election rally earlier this month that Manmohan Singh and other Congress leaders held a secret meeting with Pakistani officials to defeat the BJP in the Gujarat Assembly polls which shocked several opposition leaders.
Congress leaders, furious with the allegations continued the protests they began on Day 1 of the Winter Session on Friday.
Venkaiah Naidu who repeatedly reminding members to maintain the decorum of the House was later forced to adjourn the proceedings. Even when the House resumed, the disruption continued on the apology issue.
Following this, he agitatedly asked the MPs not to obstruct the Rajya Sabha and allow other members to raise important issues.
The House was adjourned twice first till 12 pm and then again till 2 pm, as Congress leaders continued to disrupt the proceedings.
