DMK members demanded that India should take back Kachchatheevu island, under possession of Sri Lanka, for protection of Indian fishermen.

RJD member Raghuvansh Prasad Singh demanded that UPSC should increase the number of attempts for civil service aspirants.

In Rajya Sabha, as soon as the day's proceedings started, sloganeering SP and BSP members trooped into the Well raising the issue of price rise and death of children in Muzaffarnagar relief camps, respectively.

Chairman Hamid Ansari tried in vain to pacify members of the two political arch rivals from Uttar Pradesh.

Trinamool Congress members also stood up, but they could not be heard in the din.

Ansari then adjourned the House till noon.
