Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu turned down the notices handed over by the Opposition on the ongoing farmers agitation and fuel price hike.

While Bahujan Samaj Party MP Ashok Siddhartha gave a notice on the fuel price hike, Congress MPs Deepender S Hooda and Rajiv Satav, along with Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Manoj Jha and DMK MP Tiruchi Siva gave notices on farm laws.

Naidu went on to say that the opposition will have ample time on these issues during the Budget and appropriation Bill discussion. “Also the farmers' issue has been discussed during the first leg of the Budget Session, so notices are not allowed," Naidu was quoted as saying by IANS.

Due to pandemonium, the House was first adjourned till 12 noon.

While questioning the chairperson, the leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge said that it is not fair not to discuss the issue when farmers have been agitating in the country.

The Parliament proceedings have been getting disrupted ever since the second phase of the Budget session began on Monday. Opposition members have been raising the issue of the farmers’ agitation as well as the the rise in fuel prices in both the Houses.
