The MPs are Elamaram Kareem, CPI (M), Phulo Devi Netam (INC), Chhaya Verma (INC), Ripun Bora (INC), Binoy Viswam (CPI), Rajmani Patel (INC), Dola Sen (TMC), Shanta Chhetri (TMC), Syed Nasir Hussain (INC), Priyanka Chaturvedi (Shiv Sena), Anil Desai (Shiv Sena) and Akhilesh Prasad Singh (INC).

Unruly and ugly scenes were witnessed during the passage of General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Bill on August 11, during the Monsoon session of the House. As the situation went out of control, security had to be called in.

The Treasury Bench demanded stern action against the MPs for indulging in aggressive behaviour.

In his opening remarks today in the House, Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu lamented lack of remorse by all concerned over unruly scenes during the last Monsoon session.
He also said that disruptions and unruly conduct of some members during the last monsoon session continued to haunt all.

“The Treasury Benched wanted a detailed enquiry into the conduct of some members during the final two days of the last turbulent session. I have tried to reach out to the leaders of various parties. Some of them made it clear that their members would not be a party to any such enquiry. Some leaders, however, expressed concern over the way the functioning of the House was derailed and condemned the unruly incidents,” he said.
“On my part, I was expecting and awaiting the leading lights of this August House to take lead in expressing their outrage over what had happened during the last session with assurances of introspection and spirited efforts to prevent recurrence of such incidents. Such assurances by all concerned would have helped me in appropriately handling the matter. But unfortunately, it was not to be,” he added.
