The Rajya Sabha today witnessed noisy scenes over Rafale aircraft deal and Cauvery issue before adjourning for the day. Chairman Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the House within ten minutes after it met for the day.

Congress and BJP MPs exchanged heated arguments on Rafale while AIADMK and DMK members surged into the well holding placards in support of their demand for a permanent solution to the Cauvery water dispute between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

The Chairman gave a ruling that Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel had not mentioned Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s name while referring to Rafale issue in the House on Tuesday.

Anand Sharma of Congress had alleged that Mr Goel took Rahul Gandhi’s name. The Chair said that Vijay Goel’s assertion is correct.

This was, however, countered by Anand Sharma, triggering a heated exchange of words between the Treasury and Opposition benches.

Venkaiah Naidu tried to pacify the agitated members, saying that the government has given in writing that it is ready for a discussion on Rafale and other important issues. As the bedlam continued, he adjourned the House till tomorrow.
