Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day amid ruckus

New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha was on Friday adjourned for the day amid ruckus, minutes after it met for the day’s proceedings.

After the papers were laid, Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu took up Zero Hour submissions. However, a few members trooped to the Chair’s podium holding placards and raising slogans.

Naidu told the members to return to their seats and raise their issues as per the procedures.

When the agitating members paid no heed, Naidu said: “I have been very patient throughout. But I think time has come now to take action.” He then adjourned the House for the day.

Earlier, the House remembered the martyrdom of the four sons of the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, who went down fighting the Mughals.

The Members also greeted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and former Union Minister A.K. Antony on their birthdays.
