The members did not allow Union Minister for Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, who was moving The Dam Safety Bill, 2019 for consideration in the House, to complete his speech. Bhubaneswar Kalita, who was presiding the proceedings of the Upper House, persuaded the opposition members to return to their seats and allow the minister to complete his speech. As soon as the House resumed in the afternoon, Deputy Chairman Harivansh, who was in the chair, asked Union Minister for Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat to move the bill. He also assured the agitating members that Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge would be allowed to speak on the suspension of 12 members of the House, once they return to their seats. However, the opposition members continued their protest and Kalita adjourned the House for day.
