Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day after obituary references

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day on Thursday after paying homage to five of its members, one of them sitting, who have passed away.

Soon after the House met for the day after a month-long recess, Chairman Mohammad Hamid Ansari read out obituary references to former members Puttapaga Radhkrishna, P. Shiv Shankar, Syed Shabuddin, Rabi Ray and sitting member Haji Abdul Salam.

A two-minute silence was observed after which Ansari announced that the House would remain adjourned for the day.

This was the first day of the second half of the budget session, which started on January 31.
