Trinamool demands a discussion on Augusta-Westland issue in RS
Trinamool today raised the issue of the Augusta-Westland scam in the Parliament with the Chief Whip of the party in Rajya Sabha, Sukhendu Sekhar Roy submitting a notice under Rule 267 to take up discussion on the issue by suspending the business for the day.
Trinamool wants a thorough discussion on the Augusta-Westland scam and a proper investigation so that the facts see the light of the day. Trinamool also demanded a statement from the Defence Minister in the House.
Around 12:30 PM in the afternoon when Sukhendu Sekhar Roy attempted to speak from his seat, Rule 255 was invoked by the Chairman. Other Trinamool members present in the House walked out in protest for the day after this rule was invoked.
