Promotion Quota Bill introduced in Rajya Sabha
TNI Bureau: Parliament witnessed a huge uproar in Rajya Sabha after promotion quota bill was introduced. The SP strongly objected the bill that provides reservation to SCs/STs in government job promotions. The house was adjourned repeatedly as the members of SP shouted slogans against the bill.
When the house began, the same drama was seen and BJP started raising voice against the Wal-Mart lobbying issue.
Despite Deputy Chairman P J Kurien’s appeal not to disrupt the proceedings of the House, the SP members along with BJP created ruckus over the promotion quota bill and Walmart report. The SP members climbed into the well and started slogans against the bill.
However, the BSP opposed SP’s objection in supporting the bill. It said that bill should be passed and it will bring benefits to the neglected section of the society.
