The Congress was the first to walk out after Deputy Chairman Harivansh rejected their demand for a discussion on inflation.

 

Leaders of other parties like the Left and some smaller parties also joined them soon.

The Trinamool Congress, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and some other parties also walked out of the House while raising the issues of farmers.

Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge sought to raise the issue of inflation and price rise and demanded a discussion on it.

The deputy chairman said it cannot be entertained as the Question Hour was on.

Soon other parties also walked out as they wanted to raise the issues of farmers and MSP.
