New Delhi: Opposition parties including Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, All India Trinamool Congress and Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam continued their boycott of parliamentary sessions for the third consecutive day to protest against what they claim to be Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dictatorial policies.

The Member of Parliament's demanded the appointment of a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to investigate the financial crimes allegedly committed by the Adani Group, a major Indian conglomerate with interests in ports, power, and energy. They have accused the government of ignoring the Adani case and being stubborn in its refusal to form a JPC to probe the matter. The leaders demanded for the immediate halt of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) probes into the matter, which they believe to be towards the Modi government.

Appoint JPC to probe Adani

On Wednesday, opposition MPs, including Vaddiraju Ravichandra of the BRS, protested at the Gandhi statue on the Parliament premises. They were joined by other members of the BRS, Congress, DMK, TMC, MDMK, and other parties. During the protest, the MPs raised slogans, demanding the appointment of a JPC for a comprehensive investigation into the Adani case. The leaders urged the central government to abandon its anti-democratic stance and criticized Modi's autocratic and dictatorial policies.
