Venkiah Naidu lashes out at Rajya Sabha MPs for continuously disrupting the proceedings

Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu criticised the members of the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday for repeatedly disrupting the house. He said that by doing so the members are testing the patience of the country. He later adjourned the house till 2 pm.

It must be noted that the shouting and protests by the opposition MPs continued to happen today morning also which forced the chairman to react strongly. He said, “We have not transacted any bills. The country wants development, you are testing the patience of the people of the country. Please understand that the entire country is agitated with what is happening in the House. I’ve allowed every issue, you are not discussing, unfortunately. It is the misfortune of the people of India. Chairman allows discussion, the government agrees but we are not able to have a discussion. I do not understand what is this. This is no good. This is murdering democracy. The entire country is agitated, depressed.” Earlier, 12 newly elected and re-elected members took oath in the house.
