As Bharat Ratna and Rajya Sabha MP Sachin Tendulkar rose to speak in the House today (21), Congress members disrupted the proceedings, demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clarify on his remarks against former prime minister Manmohan Singh during the Gujarat poll campaign.
 
The former batsmen and India’s captain had moved a Short Discussion Motion on the future of sports in the country and right to play.
 
His maiden speech in the House was, however, marred with the Congress stalling the session for the fifth consecutive day.
 
Amid the Opposition sloganeering, Tendulkar remained standing for close to 10 minutes. As his appeals for order went unheard, Rajya Sabha chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu reportedly said: “We’re discussing sports and you don’t have the sporting spirit.”
 
Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan, speaking to reporters outside the Parliament, said it was a matter of shame that Tendulkar was not allowed to speak.
 
This was his first attempt at initiating a debate in Rajya Sabha, where he has been a member for 5 years and is a year short of completing his term.
