New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha was repeatedly disrupted and adjourned till 1400 hours on Wednesday after the opposition created a ruckus over the violence in Maharashtra.

The first adjournment came minutes after the House met for the day. As the opposition members raised the issue and sought a discussion during Zero Hour, Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu adjourned it till 12 noon.

As soon as the House met again, the opposition members protested again, against the anti-Dalit violence. The Chair then adjourned the House till 2.

The riots in Koregaon-Bhima in Pune district on Monday led to the death of a 28-year-old, Rahul Fatangale.

The Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party blamed the BJP-Shiv Sena government in the state for security lapses that led to the violence.
