The sixth day of the Monsoon Session of the Indian Parliament is all set to begin today after both the houses got adjourned yesterday over rucks on Alwar lynching and demand of special category status for Andhra Pradesh.  

The lower house of the Parliament passed the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill 2018. The former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, during the last Parliament session, slammed the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party on the Andhra Pradesh row and said,"the BJP must keep its promise to Andhra Pradesh government".

Meanwhile, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has moved to file privilege motion against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Piyush Goyal for "misleading the House" about the 14th finance commision.

    Just attempts to stall Parliament functioning. Expect attempts to disrupt the House. Trying to divert public attention from TDP failures and Congress scams and leadership crisis. Looks like both Privilege Motions will backfire.
