Ahead of the third day’s proceedings in the Monsoon Session, the BJP on Wednesday hit out at the Opposition, accusing it of “disrespecting Parliament, bringing down its productivity”.

While majority of the opposition has been active in the protests, Union minister Smriti Irani reserved special treatment for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying he “never posed a question in the House and always disrespected parliamentary proceedings”.

“A gentleman whose entire political history has been dotted with showing disrespect to parliamentary procedure is adamant to bring down the productivity of Lok Sabha,” Irani said. 

“He has less than 40% attendance in Parliament. Today, the person who has been politically unproductive is dedicating himself to ensure there’s no debate in Parliament,” she claimed. 

Wednesday’s session is expected to be as stormy as in the past two days when both Houses witnessed adjournments amid uproar by Opposition members on various issues, including price rise, hike in GST on food items and the Agnipath scheme.
