‘Delhi Crime’ S2 to arrive on Netflix in August
New Delhi: Rajya Sabha proceedings were adjourned for almost an hour till noon on Friday as opposition parties led by the Congress tried to raise issues of price rise and levy of the Goods and Services Tax on daily essentials.
When the House assembled for the day, independent member Kapil Sibal took oath as a member of the Upper House of Parliament.
After laying of the papers, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said that many members have submitted notices under rule 267 for discussion on various issues including price rise.
Those notices were earlier disposed of, he said, adding members will be given opportunity during the session to discuss price rise.
As many members started waving placards and raising their voice, Naidu warned them not to carry placards in the Upper House.
The Chairman pointed out that a week has already been wasted. Both houses of Parliament have failed to conduct any significant business since the Monsoon Session started on July 18.
Later, he adjourned the proceedings till 12 pm as opposition members were standing at their seats as well as in the aisle. (PTI)
