The Rajya Sabha was adjourned on Monday as Congress MPs continued their sloganeering to demand discussions on the rise in fuel prices. Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge raised the issue of sharp rise in prices of petrol, diesel and LPG and demanded that the Upper House discuss this “burning subject” as people are suffering. Soon after the house was adjourned for the first time, Kharge said Congress MPs would continue their agitation once the Rajya Sabha reconvened. Amid the high-voltage run-up to the Assembly elections in four states and a Union Territory, the month-long second leg of the Budget session began on Monday. Trinamool Congress leaders wrote letters to the Lok Sabha Speaker and Rajya Sabha Chairman, calling for the adjournment of the session in view of the Assembly polls.
