The proceedings of the Lok Sabha were adjourned briefly on Monday over the purported racial remarks of BJP leader Tarun Vijay.
As soon as the House took up Question Hour, Congress members raised the issue and demanded an apology.
As they raised slogans, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the proceedings for 10 minutes within ten minutes after the House had assembled for the day.
The debate continued after the session resumed. Here are the highlights of the LS debate on the issue:
India is a secular country, discrimination on basis of caste,creed,colour cannot be allowed here: Home Minister Rajnath Singh in LS
What action are you going to take?Otherwise we will have to agitate not only inside but outside too: M Kharge in LS on Tarun Vijay's remark
Are people living in South India part of country or not? This shows your mentality,do you want to divide India?: Kharge in LS on Tarun Vijay
