New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha proceedings were adjourned for the day on Monday following continuous uproar by the Opposition Members over suspension of eight MPs.

The agitating Members continued sloganeering against the Government demanding revocation of the suspension order.

The repeated requests of the Chair to put House in order, to follow the rules and Covid protocol too, fell on the deaf ears of the protesting Members, Mr Kalita adjourned the House for the day.
