Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day after uproar over Rafale  1 Month ago

Source:   Times Of India  

NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha was adjourned on Friday as both the opposition Congress and ruling BJP staged noisy protests in the House on the Rafale jet deal issue.
Amid huge uproar, leader of the house and finance minister Arun Jaitley was heard saying that the opposition has been demanding a debate on the jet deal and so the question hour should be suspended to take up the issue.

While the Congress trooped into the well of the House seeking constitution of a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) to probe the Rafale deal, most BJP members sought an apology from Congress chief Rahul Gandhi for alleged lies on the issue.

As the uproar continued, deputy chairman Harivansh first adjourned the House till 11.30am and then later for the day.

The Supreme Court on Friday gave a clean chit to the Narendra Modi government on the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France. The apex court said there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the multi- billion dollar Rafale deal.

No sooner the House assembled for the Zero hour, members of the Samajwadi Party raised slogans relating to the recent violence in UP's Bulandshahar district while AIADMK members trooped into the well over the Cauvery river water issue.

Unlike other days, there was uproar in the House even when ministers were laying listed paper on the table of the House.
