As per news report of NDTV, a resolution for no Question Hour was passed this morning. "It's an extraordinary situation. When assemblies aren't ready to meet for a single day, we, with around 800-850 MPs, are meeting here. There are so many ways to question the government, government isn't running away from discussion," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said in Lok Sabha. Defence Minster Rajnath Singh suggested Zero Hour can be used to question the government.
