New Delhi | Jagran Politics Desk: Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till 2 pm on Tuesday, on the second day of the ongoing winter session of the Parliament. Opposition parties including Congress, DMK, RJD, Left and AAP on Tuesday staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha after their demand to revoke the suspension of 12 MPs was rejected by Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu. Soon after the House assembled for the day, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge read a submission requesting the Rajya Sabha Chairman to revoke the suspension of 12 MPs from the House for the entire winter session.

However, the Chairman denied revoking the suspension, saying the House named all members on August 10 and requested them to help in the functioning of the House but they ransacked the House. The Chairman said even Deputy Chairman also took the names of the members. Later the Congress, Left, RJD and AAP members stood on their seats and started sloganeering against the government. As the Chairman continued the House proceedings and started Zero Hour, Congress leader Kharge said "we protest and walkout from the House".
