RS proceedings adjourned till noon
New Delhi, Aug 1 (PTI) Rajya Sabha proceedings on Monday were adjourned for about an hour after protests over arrest of Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut and other issues.
Even as officials papers were being laid, Shiv Sena MPs were up on their feet protesting against the arrest of Raut.
Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said the matter has nothing to do with the House and asked them to go back to their seats.
Other opposition MPs also joined in raising issues such as price rise.
The Shiv Sena as well as TMC MPs then moved into the well of the House.
“Go back to your seats. You cannot use the House to settle the scores outside,” Naidu said before adjourning the proceedings till 12 noon.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested Raut in a money laundering case linked to alleged irregularities in the redevelopment of a Mumbai ‘chawl’ after conducting a nine-hour search at his residence.
