New Delhi: It was a day of NDA allies rising against the Narendra Modi government in Parliament. While Telugu Desam Party created ruckus and marred the proceedings in both Houses on Tuesday Shiv Sena attacked the government for ignoring the allies and said that Assembly election results in Gujarat and bypoll results in Rajasthan should be a “wake up call” for the Centre. The House saw two brief adjournments in the afternoon and once during Question Hour owing to the protests.
Later while participating in the discussion on the motion of thanks on President’s address, Shiv Sena MP Anandrao Adsul, while reminding the government about its slogan ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’, said that it does not bode well if members of one’s own family are ignored and not taken into confidence. Citing several examples from the Centre’s several schemes Mr Adsul said that while the intent of the programmes were good, there was nothing to show on the ground in terms of their implementation.
He was also scathing in his views on how demonetisation had dented the economy of the country and adversely affected all small businesses since 86 per cent of the currency which went out of circulation, never came back.
