Parliament stalemate continues, government, opposition trade charges

The Rajya Sabha too saw several diruptions with the House being adjourned nearly immediately after the day began.

As soon as the House reassembled in the afternoon, some TDP and Congress members came near the Chair's podium holding placards.

Though the House resumed functioning after an hour the proceedings were stalled again by the protesting members forcing the Speaker to adjourn the House for the day and will resume on Wednesday.

The Rajya Sabha witnessed acrimonious scenes as opposition parties insisted on a discussion on the PNB fraud under a rule that entailed voting.

"We have included all important issues in list of business". If this is the way MPs are behaving, I will adjourn the House.

When the House met at 11 AM, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu urged the members to allow the proceedings, but adjourned the proceedings the moment MPs from parties of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, TMC and Congress were on their feet.

A lot of them were heard shouting "we want justice". They will remain intact as per the Central government rules.
