New Delhi:

Parliament will witness last day of the Winter Session on Friday. Till now, there has been complete washout with very less discussion in the Houses. Opposition and ruling party have witnessed chaos with demonetisation issue. As per reports, various bills are still pending which need to be taken.

With only one day left, the Winter session of Parliament is on the verge of a washout as it failed to transact any business again on Thursday due to the standoff between the government and Opposition over demonetisation, AgustaWestland scam and some other issues.

Even on the penultimate day on Thursday, both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha continued to witness deadlock that began with the start of the session on November 16 over the manner in which a debate should be held on demonetisation and related aspects.

The Rajya Sabha saw sharp exchanges between Treasury and Opposition members as they tried to outshout each other over different issues, throwing the House into pandemonium.

The Opposition, led by Congress, said demonetisation along with vagaries of weather had hit the farmers and demanded farm loan waiver to give relief to them.

Here are the live updates:

Lok Sabha has been adjourned sine die

# The Govt failed completely in running the proceedings in the Parliament: Mallikarjun Kharge

# We told President that we wanted a discussion on demonetisation in Parliament, on problems faced by farmers, small traders etc: Mallikarjun Kharge
