RS adjourned amid ruckus, to reassemble on 11 March

New Delhi: Yet again today Rajya Sabha proceedings were adjourned amid protests and sloganeering by members of the Congress and other Opposition parties over the Delhi violence.

As soon as the House met for the day, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu lauded the role of women in all spheres of the society. He made the remarks today as International Women’s Day on 8 March falls on a holiday.

Naidu observed,” Media should have highlighted the statement on corona virus by Health Minister Harsh Vardhan in the House on Thursday as it was an issue of public concern, but unfortunately a section of media did not focus on it”.

After the papers were laid in the House, Opposition members stood up and started sloganeering over the recent violence in northeast Delhi, which claimed at least 44 lives and left over 200 injured.

Naidu asked them to allow the proceedings to go on but as some of the members trooped into the well, he adjourned the House for the day. The House will reassemble on 11 March after Holi.
