Condemning the incident in Parliament on Sunday, Chairman Venkaiah Naidu said it was the worst day for the Rajya Sabha so far. Some parliamentarians threw paper at the speaker. Mike broke down. The rule book was thrown away. I am deeply sorry for this incident.
Incidentally, the government passed two important farmers' bills in the Rajya Sabha on Sunday amid huge uproar. During this time, many opposition parties, including the Trinamool Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party, caused unrest in the Rajya Sabha.
Some MPs reached in front of the Deputy Speaker's chair, tore up a copy of the bill and reached in front of the Deputy Speaker. It is alleged that the deputy chairman was even threatened on Sunday. It is also known that offensive comments have been made. Video recordings of these are with the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs.
