As soon as the House met for the day, the Opposition pointed to the decision to extend the Lok Sabha by three days, protesting that they were not consulted.

Raising slogans like 'tanashahi nahin chalegi' (authoritarianism will not be tolerated) and 'Modi sarkar jawab do' (Modi government explain), members from Congress, the Left and TMC rushed to the Well.

Citing rules, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge demanded the intervention of the Speaker. As per the original schedule, Lok Sabha was to adjourn on Friday. The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs had on Saturday decided to extend the session by three more days.

In the din, Kirit Somaiya (BJP) referred to Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's remarks in the House on Friday in which he blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a decision not to procced with a food park plan in his Amethi constituency.

Though not much could be heard in the din, he said the decision not to go ahead with the project was that of the company and not the government. He said he has moved a privilege motion against Rahul for allegedly misleading the House on the food park issue.

BJP members raised slogans demanding an apology by Rahul, who was not present. Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal was seen showing some documemnts to BJP members.
