New Delhi: The Opposition on Wednesday wanted obituary reference to the dead soldiers in Nagrota attack. The Speaker denied the same stating that the combing operations are still on. The Opposition was not impressed and staged a walkout.
"There is a tradition in Parliament to pay respects to the dead. But today this privilege was denied to us, hence we staged a walkout," said Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.
Vankaiah Naidu blamed the Congress for not wanting to have a debate. He said the Prime Minister was in the House today but the Opposition walked out.
