NEW DELHI: Logjam continued for the third consecutive day in Parliament as the belligerent Congress forced repeated adjournments in the Rajya Sabha, while they continued their protest in the Lok Sabha over the court order in the National Herald case.  

As the Congress leaders shouted “vendetta” in both Houses saying its leaders,  including Himachal Pradesh CM, were being targeted by the government, party vice president Rahul Gandhi escalated the attack as he accused the Prime Minister’ Office of being behind this. “One hundred per cent political vendetta. Pure political vendetta coming out of PMO. It is their way of doing politics. Pure 100 per cent vendetta. I have full faith in judiciary. We will see at the end what comes out. Truth will come out,” Gandhi told reporters in Parliament complex.

He said Congress was using the Parliament to threaten judiciary, while his deputy dared Rahul to prove the charges levelled by him against the PMO.

BJP followed the counter offensive by sending a party delegation to President Pranab Mukherjee, asking for sacking of Virbhadra Singh for corruption charges, thus giving an impression that the current Session too will go the previous washed-out-Monsoon- Session way.

If the Congress strategy was to create ruckus to give an impression that they were unfairly targeted by the Modi dispensation, the NDA government’s move was to isolate them in the House by asking other political parties to participate in debate in Lok Sabha. 

Barring TMC, which backed the Congress, the other parties like SP, BJD, RJD, TRS, AIADMK, YSRCP besides BJP and allies SAD, Shiv Sena and TDP took part in discussions amidst the din.
