New Delhi: When Arun Jaitley was replying during the discussion on Finance Bill on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi made an abrupt exit from Lok Sabha, raising many an eyebrow.
Some members later said this happened because Jaitley was speaking on the 1% excise duty on gold jewellery and Rahul may have apprehended that the Finance Minister would take a dig at him for having taken up the cause of jewellers.
Lok Sabha in Rajya Sabha
A part from Rajya Sabha MPs who rushed to the House when Subramanian Swamy rose to speak over the Agusta issue, a good number of BJP's Lok Sabha MPs too deemed it fit to witness the `star' performance live from the galleries.
Several LS MPs could be seen jostling for seats in the RS gallery to listen to Swamy's attack on political corruption in high places. Prominent among those present was ex-Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurappa.
