New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the third time till 3 PM on Wednesday amid uproar by opposition Congress members over the Karnataka crisis. The Upper House was adjourned till 3 PM barely five minutes after it reconvened at 2 PM following two adjournments in the pre-lunch period. As soon as the Rajya Sabha reconvened at 2 PM, Deputy Leader of Opposition Anand Sharma sought to raise the issue of developments in Karnataka crisis.

As protests and sloganeering from Congress members continued in the Well of the House, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said if Rajya Sabha was not allowed to function it will be “inevitable” to extend Parliament session beyond July 26 so that all business can be completed.

I appeal to them earnestly to allow the Budget discussion,” Joshi said. He said Karnataka’s minister DK Shivakumar was not allowed to enter the hotel in Mumbai where Congress MLAs are lodged, as they have alleged that there is a threat to their life from him and have sought police protection. “They are there in Mumbai and they have given complaint to the police commissioner of Mumbai not to allow Shivakumar. It is none of our business,” he said. Harivansh again appealed to Chidambaram to speak on the Budget and said he cannot allow discussion on any other issue. However, when the former Finance Minister did not get up to speak, Harivansh told former Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu to address the issue. Prabhu began speaking on the Budget but as the uproar in the House continued, Deputy Chairman Harivansh was forced to adjourn the Rajya Sabha till 3 PM. Earlier the House saw two adjournments in the pre-lunch period that saw washing out of the Zero Hour and the Question Hour. This is the second day in a row during the current session of Parliament that the Rajya Sabha failed to transact any business. Congress members were up on their feet as soon as listed papers were laid and obituary reference was made, but a stern message from Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu made them retreat. Soon thereafter Congress members stormed into the well of the House, forcing Naidu to adjourn proceedings till noon. When the House met at noon for Question Hour, Congress members were again on their feet. Chairman Naidu urged members to allow the Question Hour to function and asked them to take their seats. As his pleas went unheeded, he adjourned the House in the wake of continued din created by Congress members. “This is not the way. The Question Hour is very important. So much money has been spent on this. The entire country is watching us,” the Chairman said, as he urged members creating the din to allow the House to function. Congress member Anand Sharma sought to raise a point but the chairman disallowed him. Seeing the Congress members trooping into the well and continuing to create din, Naidu adjourned the House till 2 PM, within a minute of the house assembling. Earlier at the start of proceedings, Naidu said he has not admitted notices by Congress members including Kapil Sibal under rule 267 seeking suspension of rules to take up their issue. “Let us not put democracy in danger,” he told agitated Congress members. As they continued to protest, he said, “You don’t want to allow democracy to function here?” This prompted members to take their seat and the House took up Zero Hour where submissions of urgent public important are taken up. Barely had four members made their Zero Hour submission when Congress members were up on their feet again, seemingly bolstered by the presence of their deputy leader Anand Sharma. Sharma, who was not present in the House at the start of the proceedings, sought to raise the 267 notice given by his party colleagues but Naidu said the ruling of the chair is final. “If any member has any problem, he can come and see me (later),” he said. As Congress members moved into the well of the House shouting slogans, Naidu said, “You are taking of defections, have affection for this House.” “Horse trading band karo (Stop horse trading of MLAs),” Congress members shouted from the well as Naidu ordered that nothing they say would go on record. “Please allow democracy to function,” he pleaded. “I cannot allow this in House.” “What is defection (and) affection) is for the Speaker (of the State Assembly) to decide,” he said before adjourning the proceedings. The year-old Congress-Janata Dal (S) coalition government in Karnataka is on the brink of collapse after a spate of resignations by MLAs. The Karnataka Assembly has 225 members, including one nominated MLA. The halfway mark in the 225-member Assembly is 113. Naidu said the ruling of the chair is final and this is what was followed during previous Chairmen as well. As Congress members shouted slogans against the BJP, Naidu said he has in the past expunged references to the ruling party, Congress, Left and others when they were objected to. Bhupender Yadav of the BJP said only matters related to the Government of India can be raised in the Rajya Sabha. How can indiscipline in the Congress be allowed to be raised in the House, he said. Earlier, when the House met for the day, it mourned the death of its former member R Ramakrishnan. Ramakrishnan, who represented Tamil Nadu in the Upper House from June 1980 to June 1986, passed away on July 7 at the age of 73.
