With the Opposition shouting slogans demanding a debate on demonetisation, the Lok Sabha proceedings got disrupted for the 16th consecutive day. But Thursday was different in that, slogans were heard in regional languages as well.

It was MP A Sampath who started sloganeering in Malayalam in the beginning. He shouted “Nanakkedu….manakkedu…..ayyayyo….ambambo…nanakkedithu mathiayakkoo…” (Shameful, shameful stop this shameful act).

Surprisingly the CPI (M) MP’s Malayalam slogans were repeated by Bengal Trinamool MPs. Madhyamam reports it was only after shouting the Malayalam slogans that Bengal MPs approached Sampath to ask the meaning of those words. 

The report says that Trinamool MPs were found congratulating Sampath.

Congress MPs from Kerala also repeated the Malayalam slogans.

Apart from Malayalam, Bengali slogans were also shouted at the Sabha.

Congress and CPI (M) MPs wore black bands on their right arm as a mark of protest against demonetisation.

Samajwadi Party and NCP MPs also extended their support to the Congress and CPI (M) protest.

Reacting to Opposition slogans, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley challenged the Congress to cite at least one decision the UPA took against black money in 10 years.
