Om Birla’s Try to End Parliament Impasse Unsuccessful

New Delhi: Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla on Tuesday tried to end the ongoing impasse in the Parliament over the issue of Manipur violence. But his attempt did not bring any positive results.

The Congress-led opposition stuck to the demand of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on the issue in the House followed by a debate.

This meeting of floor leaders convened by the Lok Sabha was attended by Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi and his deputy Arjun Meghwal as representatives of the government. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury of the Congress, TR Baalu from DMK, NN Rao from BRS, Supriya Sule from NCP, Asadudin Owaisi from AIMIM, Sudeep Bandopadhyay from TMC, Farooq Abdullah of NC were present in this meeting. NDA allies Pashupati Nath Paras of LJP and Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal were also there.

The government wanted to discuss on Manipur and crimes against women in all states, but the opposition demanded PM’s statement on Manipur to start any debate.

The Speaker urged leaders to discuss the issue within their party forums and said he would reconvene the meeting. A similar attempt by Rajya Sabha chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday to resolve the issue remained inconclusive.

The deadlock in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha continued for the fourth day, with no end in sight for the logjam.
