Opposition Demands Discussion On Adani Row
"We (opposition parties) have taken a decision to call for discussion on all the scams taking place in the country. We have given the suspension of Business Notice under rule 267 to discuss the issue of investment by LIC, Public Sector Banks and financial institutions in companies losing market value, endangering the hard-earned money of crores of Indians. Large number of people have invested their hard-earned money in LIC, which in turn has invested in companies like the one whose share price has tanked after a US based company raised serious questions on it. We want a joint parliamentary committee or a Supreme Court-monitored panel to probe the matter."
