house: No reconciliation sans apology: Piyush Goyal | India News

NEW DELHI: Amid the ongoing stalemate over the suspension of 12 opposition members from Rajya Sabha, Leader of the House Piyush Goyal on Friday said how can there be a reconciliation when members are unwilling to apologise for their unruly behaviour in the monsoon session.
Goyal’s remarks followed RS Chairman Venkaiah Naidu’s said: “I hope that all of us will work together to resolve the issues, if any, and I also suggest to the Leader of the House as well as the Leader of the Opposition and other leaders to sit together, discuss and find a way out for the smooth functioning of the House.”
The issue came up in the House when RJD functionary Manoj Kumar Jha said that some BJP members “gatecrashed” the site in the Parliament complex where the suspended members are staging a sit-in.
Goyal said the kind of provocative statements that are being made by the leaders of some of the parties whose members were present during the ugly scenes and the behaviour of members outside the House in the last few days only point to their endorsement of the “unruly” behaviour by the suspended members in the House during the last session.
“I was approached by certain members of the opposition … but broad parameters should be that, at least, as courtesy to the Chair and House, an apology is required, but they refused,” Goyal said.
The Opposition has termed the suspension as “undemocratic” and in violation of all the Rules of Procedure” of the Upper House.
