New Delhi, The Rajya Sabha was on Tuesday adjourned till 12 noon amid uproar by opposition members over a hike in prices of petroleum products. This is the first time during the ongoing Budget session that the House had to be adjourned due to disruptions. Congress leader Shakti Singh Gohil, Trinamool’s Dola Sen, CPI’s V Sivadasan, CPI-M’s John Brittas and Elamaram Kareem submitted notices to suspend the business and discuss the sudden increase in the prices of petroleum products including liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu did not admit the notices which led to protests and sloganeering in the House. Naidu urged the protesting MPs to allow Zero Hour business to proceed and said the issue can be discussed during the debate on demands for grants. “All the names should be noted and included in the bulletin,” Naidu said for some protesting members carrying placards inside the House. In the first hike in the past four months, petrol and diesel prices have been raised by 80 paise per litre. The petrol price in Delhi now stands at Rs 96.21 a litre and diesel Rs 87.47 a litre. In Mumbai, the price of petrol is now Rs 110.82 a litre while diesel will cost Rs 95 per litre.
