The Congress was vastly upset right this moment, with its leaders complaining that no minister was current on the conventional perform in parliament to mark the beginning anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru. Even Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu had skipped the perform, the Congress mentioned.
November 14 is the beginning anniversary of the nation’s first Prime Minister and floral tributes are paid to his portrait within the Central Corridor of Parliament yearly.
Former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh tweeted: “Extraordinary scene right this moment in Parliament on the conventional perform to mark the beginning anniversary of these whose portraits adorn the Central Corridor. Speaker Lok Sabha absent. Chairman Rajya Sabha absent. Not a single Minister current. Can it get extra atrocious than this?!”
The perform this morning was attended by the Minister of State within the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, Bhanu Pratap Singh Verma. Apart from, Chief of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and different members of parliament have been current.
The portrait of Jawaharlal Nehru was unveiled by then President of India, Dr S Radhakrishnan, within the Central Corridor of Parliament Home on 5 Could, 1966.
