Monsoon Session Opposition gears up for five pronged attack on Govt

Meanwhile, sources in the BSP said Mayawati was serious about rebuilding the party base before the 2019 elections, and might contest the Lok Sabha by-election to make a comeback in the Parliament.

Mayawati, chief of the Bahujan Samaj Party, who angrily walked out of the Rajya Sabha this morning, has quit alleging that she was not allowed to speak on what she called frequent attacks on Dalits in Uttar Pradesh.

"She rushed out of the house, we requested her to not resign and told her that she should stay there and should rethink on her decision". She further added that she wanted to draw the attention of the House to the violence against Dalits in Saharanpur and demanded more time to speak.

Mirzakhani, 40, fought with cancer for four years and was hospitalized lately as the cancer has spread to her bone marrow . Echoing similar view, Mirzakhani's friend from NASA, Firouz Naderi, said, "A light was turned off today".

RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday came out in support of BSP supremo Mayawati saying, that behaviour of BJP ministers proves that "they are anti-Dalits". She said that is why she has chose to resign. Her three-page resignation is not its appropriate form to be accepted by the chair. She is adamant that she will resign today from the upper house of Parliament, he said. "Her every message is communicated to ground level through various WhatsApp groups", a party insider said. She claimed that she had given a prior notice that she would talk on the Dalit issue and had even made it clear that she would not be able to finish her speech in 3 minutes, which is the time limit for making Zero Hour mention.

A united opposition today forced the adjournment of the Lok Sabha proceedings for almost an hour by storming the Well and raising slogans slamming the government for allegedly ignoring the well-being of farmers. Mayawati, 61, lost power in Uttar Pradesh in 2012 and her party was routed in this year's Assembly elections, winning 19 seats in the 402-member House. "We did not know the BJP has got the mandate to massacre minorities and Dalits", an angry Azad said amid interruptions from the treasury benches. Lalu Yadav said of her stand just right. The manner in which she resigned on Tuesday clearly indicates that no deal outside of UP was struck to get her back to the Rajya Sabha.

State Minister for State Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that Mayawati has insulted the house and challenged the asana.
