Opposition MPs on Tuesday climbed the officials’ table at the centre of the Rajya Sabha, waved black cloths and threw files during a discussion on the farmer protests over three central laws.

Members sat on tables for hours, many standing on them.

Describing parliament as a temple of democracy and the centre of the house as a sanctum sanctorum, Mr Naidu said: “I am distressed by the way the way the sacredness was destroyed yesterday. When some members sat on the table, some members climbed on the table of the house, perhaps to be more visible with such acts of sacrilege.”
