This was the second bill to be pasted by Lok Sabha in this session and the only one which was debated by both the government and opposition members.

A brief discussion was held for the supplementary demands for grants but amid din.

Speaker Mahajan informed the house that the Lok Sabha functioned for only 19 hours in 21 sittings. “It was not even 21 hours.”
