During Zero Hour, Rao said he has given a notice under Rules 187 and 188 against Naqvi for allegedly allowing BJP members to troop into the Well of Rajya Sabha on Friday to stall proceedings and committing breach of privilege.

Rao was piloting a private member's bill for implementation of a special package for Andhra Pradesh, which got stalled due to ruckus created by the ruling side over the controversial filming of Parliament by AAP MP Bhagwant Mann. The House was the adjourned for the day and the bill was not taken up.

Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien said Rao's notice has been received and it will be examined by the Chairman who will convey a decision on it.

Congress had yesterday threatened not to cooperate with the government on legislative business unless the private member's bill on special package for Andhra Pradesh was taken up, while several other parties including the TDP and CPI(M) strongly objected to the disruption by the BJP.
