Rajya Sabha has been adjourned twice due to Congress members. The protests continued till noon and Congress are still raising anti-government slogans. Deputy Chairman P.J.Kurien arrived and even before he took his seat, Congress members were in a hurry-bury to shout and they shouted slogans like, "Tanashahi nahi chalegi, nahi chalegi (dictatorship will not be tolerated)."
Along with them, other members also came in to oppose the multi-purpose Polavaram irrigation project. They carried some boards which had statements like "Polavaram will harm Odisha", "Condemn Polavaram. Stop Stop" and "We Oppose Polavaram."
Despite all these Kurien had a list of papers on his table. Mr.Kurien called Wansuk Syiem for a petition. But despite calling him repeatedly Wansuk Syiem never moved his petition.
The petition was to strengthen Non-lapsable central pool for resources (NLCPR) schemes. And for the people who showed placards, Mr.Kurien said, "You all knew that displaying placards is not allowed. Shouting slogan is also not allowed. Coming into well is also not allowed."
