Uproar continued in Rajyashaba over ‘National Herald Case’

Congress members, upset over the 'National Herald' case, on its consecutive second day disrupted Parliament, protesting against alleged “vendetta politics” leading to the adjournment of the Rajya Sabha.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted Congress president Sonia Gandhi on her 69th birthday, wishing her a long life and good health.  Even before Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien could take his seat when the House assembled for the day, Congress members rushed into the Well shouting slogans: “Modi teri tanashahi nahi chalegi, nahi chalegi (dictatorship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not be tolerated).” BJD members also trooped into the Well carrying placards opposing the multi-purpose Polavaram irrigation project.

 The space Mr. Modi had created for political consensus over the Goods and Services Tax (GST), following his meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,seemed to be shrinking as the 'National Herald' controversy gained traction in Parliament on Tuesday.
