New Delhi:

The Winter Session of Parliament entered the day 18 on Friday. The deadlock over opposition’s demand for PM Narendra Modi’s clarification in both Houses of the Parliament and objection over cut in import duty on wheat marred House proceedings. 

It has been over a month since PM Modi announced the ban on the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes to curb black money and corruption in India. 

Meanwhile, the Lok Sabha session also took the final call in Bhagwant Mann video case and suspended the leader for the rest of the Winter Sesssion.

The AAP leader is accused of putting the security of the Parliament House by live streaming the security measures at building entrance last year. 

The committee of the issue had recommended that Mann should be suspended for the Winter Session for the act.
