Naidu adjourns House quickly on terror attack anniversary

New Delhi: Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the House for the day shortly after members from Tamil Nadu protested, waving placards and shouting slogans, on the Cauvery issue. Parliament sources said Naidu was not in favour of protracted disruptions and repeated adjournments on a day that marked the 17th anniversary of the Parliament terror attack.

Nine security personnel were killed by terrorists on December 13, 2001.

The sources also said Naidu shared his concern with leaders at a meeting after the adjournment.
