The Nandigram issue stalled proceedings in the Rajya Sabha for the second day on Tuesday with a vociferous Opposition, led by the BJP, insisting on a debate on the matter.

As soon as the House met for the day, NDA members trooped into the well shouting slogans.

They demanded an immediate debate on the issue by suspending Question Hour.

Chairman Hamid Ansari's repeated pleas to allow the Question Hour went unheeded, forcing him to adjourn the House till noon.
