Aug 15, 2021 09:46 PM IST

On August 11, while protesting in the House some opposition MPs damaged house property and were seen jostling with the marshals who were called in to restrain them. While two Congress MPs, Chaya Varma and Phulo Devi Netam alleged they were manhandled by the marshals, a complaint has been submitted to the Rajya Sabha secretariat by two Marshals claiming they were injured in the melee.

A delegation of seven ministers on Sunday called on Rajya Sabha chairman, M. Venkaiah Naidu and demanded action against some opposition members for what they called “unprecedented, extreme and violent acts” in the House on August 11. The delegation also submitted a memorandum seeking action.
