BJP Rajya Sabha members get privilege notices


Privilege notices have been sent to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members of Rajya Sabha (RS) over the protests lodged by them in the House during the introduction of Private Member’s Bill, on Friday last. The notices were the result of a plea by Congress MP K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao, who said that the BJP members purposely began the protests, to stall his Private Member Bill on special status to Andhra Pradesh (AP). He requested action against them.
