Sukhendu Sekhar Roy (TMC) said his party has given a notice for discussion on the PNB fraud issue under rule 168. "Let us put an end to this... it is my earnest appeal...."

"All these are government-sponsored agitations that are meant to adjourn the Houses", said Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge referring to the issues raised by TDP and AIADMK.

However, the members in the Well, including those from TDP and AIADMK, continued to raise slogans and displaying placards. If this is the way MPs are behaving, I will adjourn the House.
