RS briefly adjourned after parties protest against re-naming of Mughalsarai railway station

The Rajya Sabha proceedings were closed on Friday after opposition from the Samajwadi Party and BSP have created a furor over the name change of the historic station Mughalsarai in Uttar Pradesh after Deen Dayal Upadhayay.

SP members filled the house well shouting slogans, disrupting the activities listed and forcing Vice President PJ Kurien to suspend the procedure for 10 minutes.

The issue was raised by Naresh Agarwal (SP), who has given notice in accordance with Rule 267 to request the suspension of work to discuss the issue.

But Kurien has refused, saying that the subject can be lifted in another form as a midnight notice.

However, the parties continued in Uttar Pradesh to protest.

The station was built in 1862 when the East India Company in New Delhi Howrah connected by rail.

While Agarwal said the government was trying to change the character of the country, its other party colleagues reported that the names of those “who have not contributed to the fight against freedom” occurs.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi objected to this by saying that the opposition parties did not oppose the Mughal names but can not see the name of a great thinker.

When SP members said that no railway station in the country bears the name of a personality, Naqvi said the Victoria Terminus in Mumbai was renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Maharaj.

Kurien urged members to return to their seats and allow zero hours of execution. But the slogan was.

To break the deadlock, he called Chhaya Verma (Cong) to speak. Kurien had previously not allowed him to address the issue of forest forest scam forest in Chhattisgarh, saying he could give zero hour notice to address the problem.

Amid a shouting motto, Verma alleged that a government minister of Chhattisgarh BJP had acquired the character of forest land to build a station and called for a CBI investigation.

Party members who protested against Verma will allow themselves to raise the issue, and Naqvi told how a problem state could arise in Parliament.

Slowly, as the commotion continued, Kurien postponed the proceedings for 10 minutes.

Earlier, shortly after the meeting at the House, Kurien denied notification under rule 267 given by PL Punia and Verma to raise the question of Chhattisgarh.

“You can give information about time zero,” he said. “Lift it up in another way. I do not allow it.”

As members of Congress have asked Verma to allow two minutes to make their presentation, Kurien said, “Do not pressurize me.”

He said he did not mind justifying the suspension of business to address the issue. “So, I ask you to account for the zero hour.”
