RS Chairman admonishes CPM MP for “petty politics”, allows supplementary TMC Question
While asking a supplementary question in the Rajya Sabha, Trinamool MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy today informed the House that almost 80 per cent of people in Bengal have been brought under the ambit of the public distribution system.
He also described how the people of Maoist-affected backward regions used to survive on ant eggs during the CPM rule in Bengal. He urged the Centre to increase allocations of food grains so that all the citizens of the State are covered under PDS.
Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari today admonished a CPM MP for “doing petty politics” over a question. “Why are you bringing your political battles inside the House” he said.
