New Delhi, Aug 18 (IANS) As the monsoon session of parliament reaches its halfway mark, nearly 34 percent of the Lok Sabha’s time has so far been lost to disruptions and adjournments.
The figures for the Rajya Sabha are 39 percent, data provided by think tank PRS Legislative said Thursday.
The session, which started Aug 1, is scheduled to end Sep 8.
The question hour has suffered the most so far due to the frequent protests. Of the 12 days when question hour was scheduled, it could take place only on seven days in both houses.
Of the 32 bills listed for introduction, only six could be tabled, while only one out of 35 listed bills was passed, PRS Legislative said.
