Fireworks likely as Congress set to raise Uttarakhand, Srinagar NIT issue in Parliament today

New Delhi: Fireworks are expected in the Parliament as the main opposition party Congress is likely to raise the issue of imposition of President's Rule in Uttarakhand and the Srinagar NIT crisis in both Houses on Tuesday.
According to ANI, Congress party has given notice in Lok Sabha on the Srinagar NIT issue.
The Uttarakhand issue dominated both the houses of Parliament on Monday with the Congress raising the matter in the Lok Sabha and creating ruckus in Rajya Sabha, where no meaningful business could be conducted amid uproar.
The Congress members created almost identical scenes in both houses over the issue as they raised slogans against the central government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for imposing President's rule in Uttarakhand.
Minutes before Parliament met on the first day of the second half of the budget session, Prime Minister Modi expressed the hope that parliament would be able to transact business smoothly during the session.
The Congress members did exactly the opposite as they trooped near the speaker's podium in the Lok Sabha shouting slogans like "Stop killing democracy" and "Murder of democracy will not be accepted".
The leader of the Congress party in the house, Mallikarjun Kharge, had even given notice of adjournment of Question Hour to discuss the issue.
Aam Aadmi Party's Bhangwant Mann had also given notice of adjournment on the issue of farmers' suicides in Punjab and the drought situation in Maharashtra.
The Rajya Sabha was also disrupted thrice before being adjourned for the day without it being able to conduct any business.
The Congress party yesterday warned that it will not compromise on the Uttarakhand issue and will not let Parliament function till the issue was settled.
