Proceedings in the Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day on Tuesday, after opposition parties created ruckus in the floor of the House over the contentious farm laws.

Rajya Sabha witnessed dramatic scenes over the farm laws on Tuesday.

The Opposition MPs raised slogans inside the Upper House, resulting in the House being adjourned four times without conducting any business.

Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the fourth and the final time for the day as Opposition continued with their protest demanding discussion on the farm laws.

Opposition parties – Congress, Left, TMC and DMK staged a walkout from the Upper House after their Chairman Venkaiah Naidu rejected their demand for suspension of day’s business to discuss farmers’ agitation.

The opposition parties had given notice calling for the suspension of business of the day to take up discussion on the ongoing agitation by farmers on Delhi borders against three new farm laws.

But the same was rejected by the declined by Chairman Venkaiah Naidu.

Addressing the House, Naidu said he will not accept the notices for suspension of business as the discussion on the President’s address will first be taken up in Lok Sabha and then the Rajya Sabha.

“The issue will be discussed tomorrow. The zero hour notices will be carried forward,” he said.

Naidu added that it would be incorrect to say that the farm bills were not discussed in the House.

“People say there was no discussion on farm laws; it was given four hours. And the House discussed it,” Naidu asserted.
