Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till 11 am tomorrow.

The Upper House was adjourned for the second time on Tuesday, on the second day of the ongoing winter session of the Parliament.

Earlier, Rajya Sabha was adjourned till 2 pm.

The winter session of the Parliament commenced on Monday. Both the first and second days of the session remained stormy with the ruckus by the Opposition.

Opposition parties including Congress, DMK, RJD, Left and AAP on Tuesday staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha after their demand to revoke the suspension of 12 MPs was rejected by Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu.

Soon after the House assembled for the day, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge read a submission requesting the Rajya Sabha Chairman to revoke the suspension of 12 MPs from the House for the entire winter session.

In his submission, Kharge said: "I request you to revoke the suspension of 12 members of the House."

Kharge also pointed out that he was not allowed to raise a point of order and it was a gross violation of the rule. He also said that the members should be named before issuing suspension orders against them.

However, the Chairman denied revoking the suspension, saying the House named all members on August 10 and requested them to help in the functioning of the House but they ransacked the House.

The Chairman said even Deputy Chairman also took the names of the members. "This is not the way. You ransacked the House and now you are teaching me a lesson. I cannot revoke the suspension of the members."

Later the Congress, Left, RJD and AAP members stood on their seats and started sloganeering against the government.

As the Chairman continued the House proceedings and started Zero Hour, Congress leader Kharge said, "We protest and walkout from the House".

In a move that angered the Opposition and set the stage for acrimonious exchanges, a dozen members of Opposition parties in Rajya Sabha were suspended from the winter session on the very first day on Monday following a motion brought in by the government.

The members were suspended for alleged unruly conduct towards the end of the monsoon session in August when marshals were called after Opposition members stormed the Well of the House during the passage of the General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Bill, 2021.

The suspended MPs include six from Congress, two each from TMC and Shiv Sena and one each from CPM and CPI.

The suspended MPs are Elamaram Kareem (CPM), Phulo Devi Netam, Chhaya Verma, R Bora, Rajamani Patel, Syed Nasir Hussain and Akhilesh Prasad Singh of the Congress, Binoy Viswam of CPI, Dola Sen and Shanta Chhetri of Trinamool Congress, Priyanka Chaturvedi and Anil Desai of Shiv Sena. (ANI)
