Rajya Sabha adjourned sine die

New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha was adjourned sine die on Thursday after a brief sitting.
Chairman M. Hamid Ansari adjourned the house sine die when it met at noon after the first adjournment.
Earlier, the house bid farewell to three of its members, who are going to retire.
Congress member from Puducherry, P. Kannan, will retire on October 6, while two nominated members, Ashok. S. Ganguli and H.K. Dua's term will end on November 17.
Ansari said: "They significantly contributed to its deliberations and enhanced its dignity. I wish them good health, happiness and success in their future endeavours."
H.K. Dua commented on the functioning of the house and said: "Tolerance has been missing in the house. I urge the treasury and opposition benches to evolve a consensus on running parliament smoothly."
The entire session was washed out due to protests by the opposition, led by Congress, over the Lalit Modi controversy and Vyapam recruitment scam.
