While TDP members sought to raise issues related to Andhra Pradesh, those from the Congress
demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Rafale deal.
Papers as well as reports of Public Accounts Committee and two standing committees were tabled. Besides, five members spoke on various issues during the Zero Hour.
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal said that many members have requested that December 24 and 26 should be holiday for the House on account of Christmas. Congress leader K C Venugopal said he had also given a letter on the same issue.
Later, Mahajan said that it would be a holiday on December 24 and 26.
As the ruckus continued, the House was adjourned for the day. Earlier, the proceedings were adjourned till noon following protests.
