Vice President, Jagdeep Dhankhar on Monday reached out to members of all political parties to build consensus for running the Rajya Sabha without disruptions and acrimony.

Dhankar, who is the chairman of the Rajya Sabha hosted the floor leaders of various parties for a dinner at his residence where he spoke about the need to resolve issues without resorting to disruptions and members trooping into the well of the House.

According to a person aware of the details, he sought suggestions on how parties can come together to resolve deadlocks as and when they arise.

In recent times, there have been several instances in the Upper House when the opposition and the government side disagreed on issues, which in turn led to fracas on the floor of the House.
