New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress on Wednesday alleged that the government was fielding its "ally" from Tamil Nadu to stall Parliament proceedings after both the houses faced adjournments due to protests by AIADMK and DMK members over the Cauvery issue.
Govt fielding ally from TN to disrupt Parliament: TMC
While the Rajya Sabha was adjourned twice in the pre-lunch period, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day. "Opposition parties, including Trinamool, keen to discuss all issues in #Parliament We want Parliament to run and hold this Govt accountable. However, BJP fielding its 'ally' from TamilNadu to disrupt proceedings," tweeted Derek O' Brien, Trinamool Congress' Parliamentary Party leader in the Rajya Sabha with a hashtag 'MatchFixing'. He, however, did not specify which party he was referring to as the ally. In the Rajya Sabha, Tamil Nadu's two main political parties - the AIADMK and the DMK -- staged protests on the Cauvery river issue.
