Proceedings of the Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the second day today over CBI action against Kolkata Police Commissioner in connection with chit fund scams.

TMC-led Opposition forced an adjournment of the House till 2 PM. As the Upper House met this morning, TMC MP Derek O’Brien tried to rake up the issue but Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu refused permission, prompting members from TMC, Congress, Samajwadi Party, TDP and other parties to begin protests in the well.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel countered the protesting members and said the CBI was prevented from pursuing its probe into chit fund scams. He said the detention of CBI officers performing their duties was unconstitutional.

Mr Goel appealed for order in the House, saying it has to take up Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address and discussion on the Union Budget. As noisy scenes continued, the Chairman adjourned the House till 2 O’clock.

Earlier, the House congratulated its former members, Pranab Mukherjee and Nanaji Desmukh on being chosen for Bharat Ratna and Kuldip Nayyar, Humdev Narayan Yadav and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa for Padma Bhushan.
