New Delhi: The second part of Parliament's budget session began on a stormy note with the opposition cornering the government on the issue of bank frauds. Both the Houses were adjourned within ten minutes of convening.
Earlier, PM Narendra Modi was given a rousing welcome by BJP chief Amit Shah, MPs and Ministers at the entrance of the Parliament. The members lauded Amit Shah as well for party’s landmark win in the North-East.
