Venkaiah Naidu expressed displeasure over Rajya Sabha sessions

New Delhi, Dec 22: The Rajya Sabha was suspended on Friday after the Congress gave an adjournment motion notice protesting against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's allegation that his predecessor Manmohan Singh spoke to Pakistani officials about the Gujarat elections. The Upper House will convene again on December 27.

Mr. Naidu has expressed displeasure on Rajya Sabha sessions and he said that "Parliament is in session… these days, it is on and off," said Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu, according to media.

"It is not a good thing for the country." On Wednesday and Thursday too, Naidu had admonished Congress MPs for disrupting proceedings as they demanded an apology from Modi.

Naidu had also said nobody would apologize for Modi's remarks in Parliament since they were made outside of the House and were not connected with the proceedings.

The Rajya Sabha has had only 14 scheduled sittings since December 15 when the Winter Session began, reported media.

On Thursday, former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar could not make his first address as an MP in the Rajya Sabha as Congress members had continued to shout slogans against Modi and forced another adjournment.
