The drama that unfolded on Wednesday at the Lok Sabha took a turn for worse when members from the Opposition started throwing paper planes during Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's address. Jaitley was leading a fiery response to Rahul Gandhi's continued allegations of corruption in the Rafale deal in the Parliament.
During Jaitley's speech, members in the Opposition started throwing out paper planes to disrupt the address. Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had to thwart their attempt to disrupt.
Chiding the lawmakers' behaviour, she said, " What is happening? DId you not make paper planes in your childhood? Are you children or adults? Why are you throwing paper planes? You had asked for a discusion , now you have to listen, you have to bear it. No this is not fair. You have to bear it. This is not proper.
Watch the moment below:
Rahul Gandhi during his speech in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday on the Rafale deal demanded Joint Parliamentary Committee probe on the Rafale deal saying that the Supreme Court did not stop for a Parliamentary enquiry.
"The government is saying Supreme Court took a decision on Rafale. But the reality is that it said that Rafale is not in its jurisdiction. It did not say no to JPC and Parliamentary action," he said.
Referring to PM Narendra Modi's interview to ANI, Gandhi began his speech on the Rafale deal and said that he had three questions for the Centre based on process, pricing and patronage.
Gandhi, also brought up the 'audio tape' in the Lok Sabha claiming it had Goa minister Vishwajit Rane had allegedly telling someone that the Rafale files were in former Defence Minister and present Goa CM Manohar Parrikar's house.
But his allegations were dismissed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who stood up against the Congress president and demanded him to authenticate the tapes, failing which he should face expulsion. The Speaker of the house, Sumitra Mahajan, concurred with Jaitley on his remarks, and ordered Rahul Gandhi to not play the tape or read the transcript, given the authenticity is still in question.
