Earlier on Tuesday, for the second consecutive day, the Rajya Sabha faced adjournment amid pandemonium as treasury benches sought an apology from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his remarks in London on democracy in India and the Opposition objecting to the matter and demanding a Joint Parliamentary probe into the Adani Group.
In a veiled attack on Rahul Gandhi, Leader of the Rajya Sabha Piyush Goyal raised the matter, pointing “this is the first time” that a Member of Parliament used words against the democracy of India while his visit outside the country, and sought his apology.
“He (Rahul Gandhi) should apologise…,” said Goyal.
However, the Opposition members sought a probe into the Adani Group by a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) and accused the Centre of being silent on a report by a US firm that alleged stock manipulation and accounting fraud by the group.
The members on both sides– the Opposition and the treasury benches– were sloganeering leading to chaos in the Upper House.
