Rajya Sabha disrupted over National Herald case

New Delhi, Dec 8 (IANS) The Rajya Sabha’s proceedings were disrupted on Tuesday as Congress members created a ruckus by accusing the government of “vendetta politics” in the National Herald newspaper case.

The protest by Congress parliamentarians came in the wake of Delhi High Court’s dismissal of the plea of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday seeking to quash of summons issued by a trial court on BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s complaint in the National Herald case.

Agitated Congress members trooped near the chairman’s podium as soon as the house met, raising slogans.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi questioned if the opposition’s problem was with the government or the court.

“What kind of protest is it? Is it against the government or court? Follow the legal process,” said Naqvi.

Amid the din, the house was first adjourned till 11.30 a.m., and then till 12 noon.
