The opposition also disrupted the Lok Sabha, accusing the government of allowing conversions and remaining silent on poll promises like bringing back black money and providing employment opportunities.

Facing uproar, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu insisted in the Lok Sabha that the government or BJP has nothing to do with conversions and if any individuals were violating the law, state governments were empowered to take action.
The Upper House failed to transact any business as members of SP, JD-U and TMC created pandemonium, shouting slogans and holding placards like "Pradhanmantri kala dhan wapas lao" and "Pradhanmantri jawab do-jawab do". Some members of Congress were also on their feet shouting "No PM, No House".
The House saw four adjournments before being adjourned for the day soon after 3 PM. The Lok Sabha saw two adjournments.

In Rajya Sabha, Sharad Yadav (JD-U) raised the issue of conversions, saying government's focus is on "ghar wapsi" campaigns instead of fulfilling promises made to people ahead of elections.
"You had promised incentives to farmers for their produce. Now a new thing has come... you did not say you will launch 'ghar wapsi' (conversion) campaigns. Your party ministers and MPs are saying this. You did not fulfill the promises made to people. You have forgotten them. That is why this House is not functioning," he said.
