Rajya Sabha adjourned after opposition protests

Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day on Thursday after opposition parties protested on various issues.

Soon after papers were laid on the table, AIADMK MPs were in the Well demanding protection of Cauvery delta farmers. DMK MPs also rushed to the Well soon opposing Mekedatu project. Members from Left and Samajwadi parties were also rushed to well on various issues.

Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu appealed for calm in the House saying,  "people have overwhelmingly gave a verdict. It shows their confidence in democracy. We should respect that and allow the House to run".

He said he had received notices from several MPs but was disallowed. However, he said he will allow them to raise the issues in a different form.

However, MPs did not relent forcing Naidu to adjourn the House till 11 am Friday.
