With Parliament witnessing continuous adjournments due to uproar by opposition parties over demonetisation drive, President Pranab Mukherjee today said that the ‘disruption of the Parliament is not acceptable at all’.

“Disruption of Parliament is not acceptable at all. For God's sake, do your job. You are meant to transact business in Parliament," Mukherjee said at a meeting of Defence Estates Organisation.

He also pitched for the early passage of Women Reservation Bill in the Lowe House.

"Women reservation bill is pending for a long time in Parliament and representation of women is abysmally low. It is totally unacceptable," he said.

Both the Houses of the Parliament were adjourned once today without transacting any business due to chaos by opposition parties over demonetisation drive.

The Winter Session of the Parliament is heading towards a complete washout over the demonetisation move. The Parliament has failed to transact any business due to continuous uproar by the opposition parties over government’s November 8 decision.

The opposition parties in the Lok Sabha have been demanding a debate under a rule that entails voting whereas the government has said that it wanted to discuss it under Rule 193, which does not entail voting. 

In the Rajya Sabha, opposition parties have said that the debate will take place only if the Prime Minister is present in the House. On December 1, even in the presence of the Prime Minister, the opposition parties refused to allow the House to transact any business.
