"There were no AIADMK members in the Well. When the House could have taken up legislative business and discussion on banking scam, Congress members rushed to the Well raising slogans...They accuse others of disrupting proceedings. Now, they stand exposed," he said in New Delhi.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day on Wednesday after bidding farewell to retiring members amid protests by Congress members demanding that a discussion on the banking fraud should be held under a rule that entails voting.

The Rajya Sabha has not been able to transact any serious business for the 17th day in a row due to protests over several issues. However on Wednesday, it took up the process of bidding farewell to about 60 members whose tenure would end in the next few weeks.
