Thrilling drama in the Rajya Sabha as TMC MP Shantanu Sen steals a statement from Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw (right).

On Thursday, the Rajya Sabha was engulfed in high drama as the Opposition launched a series of protests against a variety of concerns. After Trinamool Congress MP Shantanu Sen stole a statement paper from Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw as he stood to speak on the Pegasus snooping incident, things got extremely violent. Sen then tore the paper in half and hurled it in the direction of the Deputy Chairman. In the seconds before Vaishnaw, who was due to deliver remarks about alleged phone tapping, took the podium, opposition members rushed to the Well and began shouting anti-government slogans at the government.

Deputy Chairman Harivash advised the members of Parliament who were protesting to return to their respective seats and allow the Minister to finish his statement. As Vaishnav began to make his testimony, TMC MP Shantanu Sen rushed to his seat and took the paper from the Minister, tearing it apart and preventing him from continuing.

The Chair then declared the House to be adjourned until 11 a.m. the following day. Earlier today, the House of Commons was adjourned twice as members of the Opposition expressed concerns about alleged surveillance using Pegasus spyware and other technologies.

The Monsoon Session of the Parliament convened on Monday and will run until June. Both Houses of Parliament — the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha — have been unable to conduct any business as a result of the unrelenting clamor by members of the Opposition.
