  • Opposition says its voice is muzzled boycotts RS for the day

Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said that this was a serious matter and all parties should get equal time on this TV.

The action came after two brief adjournments of the house as Ramesh didn't leave the house despite being named by Kurien.

Vice President and Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu is setting a precedent by getting rid of colonial phrases used in Rajya Sabha.

Escalating the faceoff, a fuming Opposition led by Congress jointly boycotted the Rajya Sabha proceedings on Tuesday, alleging that the chair was not following the rules and procedures and indulging in frequent adjournments thus preventing them from raising important issues of governance. He said, he has told the Floor Leaders if the House proceedings are disrupted at the start, he would have no option but to adjourn the House till lunch.

O'Brien raised the issue in the Upper House, saying "I seek your protection". We have the highest respect for the chairman. "The manner in which the Rajya Sabha is being run, the Opposition's voice is being completely muzzled, they are silencing the people's voice".

Samsung Vice Chair Released From Jail On Appeal Against Bribery
In the past, Korean judges have been lenient toward chaebol chairmen on the basis of their importance to the national economy. Speaking in front of cameras in Seoul, Lee said his time behind bars had been a "really valuable" period of self-reflection.

Senior Samajwadi Party lawmaker Naresh Agarwal accused the Rajya Sabha Chairman of being "partial" and alleged that the House was being run by the BJP. "What's the use then of having a Parliament", he asked.

BSP leader Satish Chandra walked in at 2 p.m. into the Rajya Sabha.

"This is murder of democracy; Parliament is not the only institution which is being marginalised, other institutions are also being marginalised", Trinamool Congress MP Derek O' Brien said. "When members and parties realise that they would ultimately be the losers of such disruptions and adjournments, they would talk to each other and enable better functioning of the House", he said.

Earlier, in the debate of "Motion of Thanks to the President", Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad levelled a series of allegations against the government, accusing it of treating Opposition leaders as "terrorists" and of tapping their phones.
