State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs (MOS) V Muralitharan read out the recommendation to suspend the house.
“We are concluding the 252nd session of the Rajya Sabha today. This session has been marked by several fancy features caused by the coronavirus outbreak earlier this year. We have to conclude eight sessions. Eighteen seats were planned. We have completed 10,” the Rajya Sabha chairman said. M Venkaiah Naidu said.
“The chambers of both houses, the four galleries of the house, from six separate locations in this August House, should have done the first of its kind in the history of the Rajya Sabha.
The chairman said he was grateful that the MPs had adapted themselves to the unique demands required by the Kapil-11 epidemic.
“A total of 25 bills have been passed and six bills have been introduced in these 10 sessions. Home productivity has been 104.7 per cent during this session,” Naidu said.

The Vice-President and Rajya Sabha Chairman also raised the issue of tension created by the opposition over the farm bill and urged everyone to think deeply about the issue.
“While the session has been satisfactory in terms of productivity, there are some areas of concern. We need to think about these issues collectively to make a difference in the future. For the first time in the history of this House, a notice was made to remove the deputy chairman. “The developments surrounding this unprecedented move have been extremely painful for those who hold the dignity and dignity of the House in their hearts this August.”
