Parliament won’t be adjourned sine dieAugust 24th, 2012 - 6:38 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 24 (IANS) The government Friday scotched rumours that it may adjourn parliament’s monsoon session sine die in the wake of the continuing protests over coal blocks allocation.
“There is no question of adjourning the parliament sine die… there are many bills pending,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal told IANS.
The speculation followed the BJP’s determination not to let parliament function for the fourth day Friday.
Bansal, who spoke to BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, said the government will keep trying to restore peace.
“We are talking to them (BJP) daily… We hope a solution will emerge soon,” he said.
