Rajya Sabha adjourned again over price rise

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Feb 24: The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the second successive day on Wednesday, Feb 24, following an opposition uproar over the price rise issue.

The house was assembled at 11 am with S S Ahluwalia and other members of the BJP demanding that the discussion be held under rules 167 and 168.

A discussion under the two rules requires not only voting but also that the sense of the house on the topic under discussion be recorded.

Chairman Hamid Ansari said there was consensus on discussion on the issue but not on procedure.

He pointed out that a short duration discussion on the issue is listed later in the day.

"We are ready for a discussion. Let question hour be suspended and let the discussion begin right now," said Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Prithviraj Chavan.

With the opposition in no mood to relent, Ansari adjourned the house till 12 noon.
