Today was the last day of the Monsoon Session. As has happened everyday for two weeks, both Houses were adjourned without transacting much business. For much of this session, MPs have come to both Houses, shouted, even assaulted each other, taken their daily allowances and gone home. It is estimated that the repeated adjournments that washed out the Monsoon Session have cost the taxpayer Rs. 10 crore for the two weeks they lasted.
