Proceedings in both the Houses of Parliament were paralyzed for the sixth day today over several issues, including Rafale aircraft deal. 

The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha witnessed repeated disruptions before adjourning for the day. 

The Lok Sabha saw acrimonious scenes on Rafale, with Opposition and Treasury bench members levelling allegations against each other. As chaotic scenes continued, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till Wednesday.

Opposition members in the Rajya Sabha continued their agitation on Rafale and other issues. 

In the pre-lunch session, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad raised the Rafale issue, saying his party has given a privilege notice. 

Responding to this, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said the notice is under his consideration as it pertains to a serious matter. 

Amidst heated exchanges between the treasury and opposition benches, the House was adjourned till 2 PM. When the House re-assembled post-lunch, Congress MPs and Members from Tamil Nadu continued to raise slogans over Rafale and Cauvery issues forcing the Chairman to adjourn the House for the day.
