Naidu To Review Upper House’s Rules to Minimise Disruptions

[New Delhi] Naidu To Review RS Rules to Minimise Disruptions
Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu today said he has decided to review the rules of the Upper House in order to minimise disruptions which have marred its proceedings during the ongoing Budget session.
Veteran Congress leader K Rahman Khan, who is retiring from the House at the end of his tenure, said in his farewell speech that the House should pay attention to the rules and procedures of the Rajya Sabha.
Several retiring members had also raised the issue of frequent disruptions in the House and suggested emulation of the examples of the House of Lords and the House of Commons in Britain.
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi had lamented that the retiring MPs were unable to participate in discussions on crucial issues, Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said it would be unfair to blame the Opposition for forcefully raising people’s issues in the House, virtually justifying the protests
