From past two days, the work of Parliament is also under stalemate as Congress, NCP, RJD have been protesting against the formation of BJP government in Manipur and Goa. In both the states, Congress was the largest political party to win the mandate but was short of 4 seats in Goa and 3 seats in Manipur. However, the runner up BJP won the number game and proposed majority before Congress.
Meanwhile, Supreme Court has asked both Congress and BJP to pass floor test on March 16.
