The Congress today boycotted the breakfast hosted by Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu in the honour of new Deputy Chairman Harivansh, in protest against the passage of bills amid a din in the Upper House yesterday.
The Rajya Sabha chairman had invited the members of the House to breakfast in the honour of the newly-elected deputy chairman as well as the newly-elected members. The breakfast was held at the Parliament House Annexe.
The Congress had raised strong objections yesterday to the passage of certain bills amid a din. The members of the party had even raised slogans when a bill to establish a National Sports University in Manipur and the Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill were passed.
The Congress members were vociferously raising a demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) into the Rafale deal, while alleging corruption in it.
