Congress had given an adjournment motion on the withdrawal of Special Protection Group (SPG) cover to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and former party president Rahul Gandhi. But it was rejected by Speaker Om Birla. Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury then raised the issue of withdrawal of SPG security cover to the Gandhi family, but the government said he cannot raise the matter in Zero Hour as he had not given a notice for the same. The Upper House was adjourned till 2 pm amid uproar over JNU protests and situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
The topic of discussion is something that affects everyone irrespective of our caste, creed, age & religion. It's affecting us while we stand and talk about it in Parliament. It's high time we stop politicising this issue: Gautam Gambhir, BJP, in Lok Sabha on air pollution in Delhi
Gautam Gambhir, BJP: The state is that of a climate emergency - Delhi is the worst affected. The state can no longer get away with gimmick like Odd-Even & banning construction sites. We need long term sustainable solutions and stop the blame game. It's time to own up and act responsibly: Gautam Gambhir, BJP, in Lok Sabha on air pollution in Delhi
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla expresses displeasure over absence of Parliament officers and staff during important discussions in the House.
Just like there are standing committees such as Committee on Public Undertakings and Estimates Committee, there should be a committee to look into pollution and climate change: Manish Tiwari
It's important that today this House gives a message to the nation that this (House), comprising the people whom they chose as their representatives, is sensitive and serious about this issue. It's not only about air pollution; our rivers are also polluted today: Manish Tiwari
When the pollution issue occurs every year in Delhi then why is it that no voice is raised from govt & this House over this? Why do people need to knock the doors of the Supreme Court every yr over this issue? It is a matter of grave concern: Manish Tiwari
