RS adjourned amid chaos over Deoria shelter home case

New Delhi, Aug 7: The Rajya Sabha on Tuesday adjourned amid din over the issue of Deoria shelter home just after the laying of the papers in the House finished.

Just after paying obituary references to former Congress member R K Dhawan, AAP member Sanjay Singh raised the Deoria shelter home issue where 24 minor girls were rescued by the administration on Monday in Uttar Pradesh, but the Chair did not allow Singh to speak.

Later members of Samajwadi Party joined him in raising the issue, creating ruckus in the House. Naidu tried to restore order in the Upper House but the AAP and SP member did not listen to him.

The Chair adjourned the proceeding of the House. UNI
