While Congress demands a debate under certain clause While Congress demands a debate under certain clause under which at least three ministers - agriculture, cooperation and food supplies - need to reply to one adjournment motion, the treasury bench is opposed to it.

But the Congress has to give notice under different rules so that one minister will reply to the debate and not three," said parliamentary affairs minister Kalpataru Das. Citing a previous instance, Singh said there was nothing wrong if two or three ministers reply to a debate on one subject. "The ministers for agriculture and food supplies had given statements in reply to one adjournment motion on farmers suicide cases on February 15, 2008," Singh pointed out.

November 28 and December 2 were holidays. On the other days, no business was possible except presentation of supplementary budget by finance minister Prasanna Acharya amid uproar on November 29.
