New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha's proceedings were once again disrupted on Tuesday over the Delhi and District Cricket Association issue as Congress members raised slogans against the government.
Congress leader Kumari Selja raised the issue soon after the upper house met. Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien, however, said an allegation against a member cannot be made in the house without prior notice.
The deputy chairman tried to make the house function, but the din continued. After around half-an-hour, the house was adjourned till 12 noon.
As the Congress members raised slogans to demand the resignation of the finance minister when the house met for the question hour at 12 noon, Chairman M. Hamid Ansari adjourned the house for half-an-hour.
At 12.35 p.m., Ansari tried again to take up the question hour, but confusion prevailed amid the din as to which question was being taken up. The house was then adjourned till 1 p.m.
The proceedings in the upper house were disrupted on Monday as well after Congress members demanded Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's resignation over alleged corruption in the DDCA.
