New Delhi [India], February 5 (ANI): Amid repeated adjournments of the Parliament following opposition ruckus, Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP Derek O'Brien on Sunday said that his party wants a debate, not disruption.
The TMC MP also alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party is scared while also claiming that the party is running away from a debate in both Houses.
O'Brien also took a jibe at the Opposition parties stating that they will be conspiring together with the BJP if any Opposition party disrupts the proceedings.

The Parliament was adjourned on Friday till Monday.

If any Oppn party disrupts, they are in CAHOOTS WITH BJP We All India Trinamool Congress want debate, not disruption," O'Brien tweeted.
Opposition parties forced adjournments in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha over the Hindenburg-Adani group row for the second day on Friday with the presiding officers urging members to take up debate on the motion of thanks to the President's address.
