Miffed over the continuing impasse in both houses of Parliament over the government's demonetisation move, senior Bharatiya Janata Party functionary L K Advani has said that he felt like resigning as a result of his disappointment with the dysfunctional Parliament.  

"Parliament disruptions are so disappointing that I wonder if I should resign from Lok Sabha," Advani was heard saying. 

With the Winter Session of Parliament ending tomorrow, both houses have seen virtually no transaction of legislative business due to the continuing standoff between the opposition and treasury benches over the Centre’s move to outlaw higher denomination notes.

The leaders of 15 different opposition parties have decided to march from Parliament to the Rashtrapati Bhawan tomorrow to meet with President Pranab Mukherjee and apprise hime of the hardship faced by common man after demonetisation.

The Parliament erupted in protests on Thursday as it increasingly looked like the winter session is heading towards a washout.

So far, the government refused to accept a debate followed by a vote; the opposition insisted that PM Modi must explain his reform, intended at uncovering black money and punishing its owners.

The Kiren Rijiju controversy once again echoed in the Upper House today with Congress leader Anand Sharma giving notice for discussion on the Union minister's alleged involvement in a hydro power project scam in Arunachal Pradesh.

Rahul Gandhi on Thursday alleged that he has detailed information about "personal corruption" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi which he wants to present in Lok Sabha but is not being allowed to do so by the PM. 

Asked what kind of information he has, the Congress Vice President said, "That information is personal information about Narendra Modiji which I want to state in Lok Sabha. It is personal corruption of the Prime Minister that we have detailed information about. We want to present it, which the Prime Minister is not allowing us to speak." 

However, BJP has termed Rahul's allegations as biggest joke of the year.

Asked to respond to Rahul's statement, Union minister Kiren Rijiju termed the remark as the "biggest joke" of the year

"Everybody feels that it is the biggest joke of the year that Rahul Gandhi says Narendra Modi is scared of his oratory skill. If he speaks will there be an earthquake or the balloon will burst.
