Rajya Sabha witnessed unruly scenes Wednesday when Chairman Venkaiah Naidu asked BJP president Amit Shah to conclude his statement over the final draft of National Register of Citizens (NRC). With the Opposition unrelenting, Naidu was forced to briefly adjourn the House.
On Tuesday, the Upper House transacted little business after Congress MPs trooped to the Well and raised slogans over Shah’s remarks on the NRC. Shah, in his address before the House, claimed the Congress, unlike the BJP, lacked courage, to identify illegal migrants in Assam.
