PNB fraud: Opposition wants debate in Lok Sabha on March 6

So had the other Opposition parties who had separately made a decision to take the government head on in Parliament.

After a month-long recess, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha today resumed for the second half of the Budget Session 2018.

On the other hand, the government may push for passage of the pending triple talaq bill and the OBC bill.

Congress Deputy Leader in the Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma submitted an adjournment notice to discuss the alleged bank fraud.

The opposition parties like Congress, the Trinamool Congress, the Left parties, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the Samajwadi Party seem to have united to raise the issue.

"The PNB scam was the biggest loot and fraud in the country".

No Left members were present in the House in the first hour.Prime Minister Narendra Modi was received in the House by thumping of desks by Bharatiya Janata Party members as he is being chiefly credited for the party's recent electoral victories in the three northeastern states, specially the Left-ruled Tripura.

Calling it the Chhota Modi scam, the Congress said the government's claim of being an anti-corruption crusader was in a shambles and that is why it arrested Karti Chidamabaram, son of former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram. But the government is expected to bring in some other crucial bills meant to deal with bank frauds, among others.

The government has also listed a few bills for consideration and passage in both Houses. The Congress party has accused the BJP of doing "vendetta politics" and deviating the focus from bank fraud.

In the Lok Sabha, it intends to bring "The Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Bill, 2017", ' The Specific Relief (Amendment) Bill, 2017" tomorrow, and "The Dentists (Amendment) Bill, 2017', on Tuesday. "We will demand answers from the government on how the fraud happened".

"The banking sector is in a deep crisis and its credibility is under stake", he said.

Apart from the Congress, other Opposition parties including NDA constituent Telugu Desam Party (TDP) launched a forceful attack on the government. I don't want to name any particular issue as there are many. "Inside the Parliament, we'll take it up through floor coordination", Communist Party of India (CPI) Rajya Sabha member D Raja told Firstpost.

In the wake of the Nirav Modi-Mehul Choksi bank fraud case that came on the back of the BJP's defeat in the Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh bypolls and the lacklustre showing in the Gujarat Assembly elections, the party had been on the back foot. "BJP will not be able to win Karnataka that easily".
