Advani wants to quit over Parliament logjam but BJP, Oppn don't seem to care
Advani also asked for the intervention of Home Minister Rajnath Singh to ensure that the Parliament functions smoothly for the last two days of the session
Senior BJP leader LK Advani expressed his displeasure over disruptions in both Houses of Parliament on Thursday adding he should call it a day.
"I feel like resigning," the veteran leader told his colleagues after the Lok Sabha was adjourned again amid uproar by the Opposition members on demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
Thank you Advani ji for fighting for democratic values within your party https://t.co/dTkCYB235g

Advani also asked for the intervention of Home Minister Rajnath Singh to ensure that the Parliament functions smoothly for the last two days of the session.
Earlier, Opposition members raised the note ban and the Arunachal Hydel project scam involving MoS Home Kiren Rijiju. The uproar came a day after Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi made shocking revelations that he had information about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's corruption.
For the government, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu sought a discussion on Agusta Westland scam and assured the guilty will be booked. Earlier, Naidu had announced that PM Modi will be present in Parliament for the remaining two days of the session. Modi was present today.
The Opposition continued with their protests against demonetisation.
