Opposition creates chaos in the parliament, Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu breaks down expressing deep anguish

The monsoon session, started on July 19, has witnessed a cycle of disruptions and protests in both Houses of Parliament over several topics resulting in adjournments, as well.

Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday got emotional after the opposition created chaos in the upper house and destroyed the sacredness of the house.

On Tuesday, ugly scenes were witnessed as opposition members waved black flags and climbed on the officials’ table shouting slogans against the new farm laws.


As soon as the discussion revolving the new reforms began, opposition parties namely Congress, Aam Aadmi Party and Trinamool Congress engaged in disorderly events in an undemocratic attitude. One MP even hurled an official file in the Chair’s direction. 

Reacting to the unholy events that took place on Tuesday, Venkaiah Naidu remarked, “I am distressed by the way the way the sacredness was destroyed yesterday. When some members sat on the table, some members climbed on the table of the house, perhaps to be more visible with such acts of sacrilege.”

“I have no words to convey my anguish and to condemn such acts as I spent a sleepless night…last night”, he added, after which he broke off, choking up.


Sources say that Venkaiah Naidu may take action against the opposition MPs who violated the conduct in the “temple of democracy” according to Venkaiah Naidu.

Mr Naidu said the opposition could have discussed their objections to the farm laws in the house, protested or voted against it. “But it is for the government to act. You cannot force the government to do this or not to do this… Yesterday was a golden opportunity for the concerned members to have gone on record…but it seems their sole intention was to not allow the house to function.”

Appealing to the members of the house, Mr Naidu added that it is seriously needed to reflect on what has happened yesterday and explore the remedies, failing to do so would certainly render the parliamentary democracy irrelevant.

Observing the ruckus in the parliament on Tuesday, the Lok Sabha was adjourned sine dine on Wednesday, two days before the scheduled conclusion of the Monsoon Session of the Parliament.
