NEW DELHI, April 25 - Angry over imposition of President�s Rule in Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh, the Congress today created a ruckus in Parliament, accusing the Modi dispensation of toppling democratically-elected governments of Opposition parties, a charge rejected by Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
The issue generated heat in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha on the opening day of the session with Congress members in both Houses storming the Well and party chief Sonia Gandhi joining them in raising slogans.
In the Lok Sabha, Leader of Congress Mallikarjun Kharge and his party colleagues staged a dharna in the Well as their notice for adjournment motion on the issue was rejected by the Chair.
�It is a murder of democracy,� Kharge said as the Lower House assembled for the day, telling Speaker Sumitra Mahajan that he has given a notice for an adjournment motion on the issue. Members of JD(U) and AAP were also in the Well along with Congress. AAP leader Bhagwant Mann was repeatedly seen pleading with the Chair to allow Kharge to have his say.
Amid a noisy protest by the treasury benches, Kharge said the Union Government is purchasing MLAs, pressurising MLAs to instal BJP Government �by killing Constitution.� � PTI
