The Rajya Sabha was on Thursday adjourned twice during the pre-lunch sitting on unusual grounds as members complained of leakage of some kind of gas.

At 11.28 am, when minister of state V Narayanasamy was responding to a question, Congress member Rama Chandra Khuntia complained that there was a gas leakage. Other members too made a similar complaint.

Chairman Hamid Ansari then adjourned the House for 15 minutes.

When the House reassembled, deputy chairman PJ Kurien announced another adjournment till noon.

The gas leakage complaint comes three days after Parliament complex faced three brief power cuts on May 7.
