New Delhi, Nov 28: After black umbrellas and black shawls, now it is earthen pots that Trinamool Congress (TMC) members are using to protest outside Parliament.

This time TMC is protesting against the reported move of Narendra Modi government to amend MNREGA.

After umbrellas and black shawls, Trinamool Congress now protest with earthen pots.
TMC MPs who were seen holding earthen pots demanded that MNREGA should not be amended rather the wages under the scheme should be raised.

Earlier on Thursday, black umbrellas and black shawls were used in Lok Sabha by TMC to rake up the issue of black money.

As soon as the Question Hour commenced, TMC members entered the House draped in black shawls. They raised slogans like 'kala dhan wapas lao' (bring back black money) before taking seats.

Unlike earlier occasions, they did not disrupt the proceedings today. Anguished over display of slogan-written umbrellas inside Lok Sabha by TMC members, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had yesterday warned them not to force her take action against erring parliamentarians.

"There are provisions for disciplinary action against erring members. We are the ones who should be seen as ideal people...Let me not take action. Allow me to run the House smoothly without taking any action," she had said.

Her comments came after Trinamool Congress members on Tuesday brought in black umbrellas with anti-government slogans painted on them to highlight the demand for bringing back black money stashed away abroad.
