New Delhi: Opposition parties in the Rajya Sabha walked out of the House on Monday after the Chair rejected demands for a debate on Chinese incursion on the borders, PTI reported.

Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar rejected all the nine notices under rule 267 saying they were not in order. However, Congress and other parties kept insisting on their demand for suspension of business so the issue could be taken up.

Pertinently, India has been witnessing a huge political clash as parties continue to comment on the recent face-off between the Indian Army and Chinese Army in the border region in the Yangtse area of Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang.

A face-off between Indian and Chinese troops in the Tawang sector on December 9 led to minor injuries “to a few personnel” from both sides.

Indian Army issued later issued a statement confirming that the Indian and the Chinese troops clashed along the LAC in Tawang sector of Arunachal Pradesh. One report suggested that six Indian armed forces personnel were injured. The army side had said that both sides suffered minor injuries in the clash.

Soon after the reports of the clash between the neighbouring countries started circulating, the opposition started questioning Narendra Modi-led government and also disrupted the Parliament’s Winter Session.
