Trinamool Congress' Member of Parliament in Rajya Sabha Derek O'Brien today (20 September) created a big ruckus in the Upper House during the discussion on Farm Bills.
These bills were tabled in the Rajya Sabha today.
As per reports, O'Brien as part of his protest against the Farm Bills entered the well of the house and aggressively snatched the rule-book placed in front of the speaker. He then reportedly attempted to tear it.
The Rajya Sabha was adjourned following the uproar.
O'Brien though did not apologise for his behaviour and subsequently attacked the centre for 'breaking every rule of the parliament'.
"They have broken every rule of the Parliament. It was a historic day, in the worst sense of the word. They cut RSTV feed so the country couldn't see. They censored RSTV", O'Brien has been quoted as saying.
