New Delhi: The proceedings in the Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the fifth consecutive day on Monday over the Rafale jet deal and Cauvery issues, leading to adjournment of the House for the day.

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the House within minutes of the assembly convening as members of Tamil Nadu parties, DMK and AIADMK, stormed into the well of the House and the Congress and treasury benches raised slogans.

Leader of the Opposition and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that he has given a notice for the taking up of a discussion over the government allegedly misguiding the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jets from France. He was countered by slogan-shouting from treasury benches demanding an apology from the Congress after the Supreme Court

gave a clean chit to the deal.

Naidu interruped Azad, saying his notice has been received but the issue pertains to a subject matter under the consideration of the Supreme Court. He then went on to adjourn the proceedings till tomorrow.

Before the ruckus started, Naidu said he had admitted a call attention notice on the destruction caused by cyclones in different states. Azad's notice about price rise and the one given by Ramgopal Yadav of Samajwadi Party and TMC's Derek O'Brien on the agrarian crisis were also admitted.

When the House met for the day, Naidu mentioned the accomplishment of P V Sindhu who scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman to win a gold medal at the recent World

Federation Badminton Competition in China. Members thumped desks to congratulate Sindhu on the feat.
