New Delhi: Members of Congress, Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) and AAP on Tuesday moved suspension of business notice in the Rajya Sabha under rule 267 demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Adani scam.

Congress Deputy Leader in the House Pramod Tiwari, AAP MP Sanjay Singh, and BRS MP K Keshav Rao moved suspension notice on the issue.

On Monday, Congress alleged that the government did not want Parliament to function.

“Parliament was adjourned for the day because the Government simply didn’t want it to function. It created a completely bogus diversion to keep the attention away from the combined Opposition demand for a JPC into the PM-linked Adani Maha Mega Scam,” Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh had said.

Earlier in the day, the Opposition members had staged a march towards Vijay Chowk and Congress president and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that there is no rule of law under Modi.

Addressing a press conference at Vijay Chowk outside Parliament, soon after both Houses were adjourned, Kharge said, “There is no rule of law and democracy under Modi ji. They are running the country like a dictatorship, and then they talk about democracy.

Those “crushing and dstroying democracy” are talking of saving it, he added.

Over the Adani issue, Kharge said, “We are demanding the constitution of the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) on the Adani stocks issue. When we raise the issue, then mikes are switched off and a ruckus erupts in the House.”

However, he added that the Opposition is united and will continue to demand the JPC on the Adani issue.

Ramesh wrote a letter addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing the questions that the Opposition parties were unable to ask due to the ruckus created in the Parliament.

“The PM got his drumbeaters to get Parliament adjourned today so that the demand for JPC into the Adani MahaMegaScam does not get raised. But that will not stop HAHK( Hum Adanike Hain Kaun)-27. Chuppi Todiye Pradhan Mantriji,” Ramesh tweeted.
