    Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar abruptly adjourned the House for the day after a disagreement with TMC leader Derek O’Brien. O’Brien wanted to discuss the situation in Manipur, but Dhankhar was not allowing it. O’Brien thumped the desk to make his point, which angered Dhankhar. The chairman called O’Brien’s actions theatrics and said they would not be tolerated. Dhankhar then adjourned the proceedings for the day.

    47 MPs from various parties had given notices to discuss the Manipur situation, but none of them were accepted. Dhankhar read out the names of these MPs and expressed his frustration with the ongoing situation. He asked members to rise above partisan interests and agree to a short duration discussion on the issue.
