NO substantial business could be transacted in both the Houses of Parliament on the 19th straight day on Tuesday due to continued uproar and noisy scenes created by the Opposition.

In the Lok Sabha, a day after the nation witnessed large-scale violence over the recent Supreme Court order on the SC/ST Act, Home Minister Rajnath Singh made a statement saying the Government was not a party to the decision and, in fact, it has already moved the apex court for a review of its decision. The only listed business the Rajya Sabha could take up was that 41 newly-elected members took oath or affirmation in the House and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was renamed the Leader of the House. Both the RS and the LS have not transacted any substantial business ever since Parliament reassembled.
