New Delhi:

Parliament sessions continued to be disrupted up until Friday amid Opposition protests demanding the dismissal of Union Minister Ajay Mishra and the reinstatement of 12 suspended MPs. 

In light of the ongoing chaos, Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the house until today, stating that parties had decided to find a solution and “maintain peace and smooth functioning during House proceedings”.

However, the government’s efforts to initiate back-channel talks to resolve the ongoing impasse in Parliament may hit a wall, messages from leaders of the Congress and Trinamool Congress have suggested. The Opposition, they have made clear, stands together, and has no intention of budging from its demand of the revocation of suspension of the 12 MPs.

The Opposition protests center both the 12 members of parliament who were penalized for “unruly behaviour” in the Monsoon Session, as well as Ajay Mishra, whose son, Ashish Mishra, is the primary accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence that saw death of eight people, including four protesting farmers.

On Friday, Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu had asked the opposition and the government to meet and reach an understanding on the issue that has stymied the Winter Session since it started on November 29.
