Sachin Tendulkar unable to speak, Congress Men set Rajya Sabha in an outcry

The Rajya Sabha was abruptly adjourned on Thursday when nominated Member of Parliament Sachin Tendulkar was unable to speak in the house as Congress leaders started an outcry.
Sachin Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and a former captain who is widely regarded as the greatest batsman of all time but the scenario in Rajya Sabha was quite humiliating for him. As MP Sachin Tendulkar got up to speak, uproar in Rajya Sabha over Prime Minister Modi’s remarks on Manmohan Singh during Gujarat election campaign, forced him to stall his speech.  Congress has been since the past week seeking an explanation from PM Modi over “false” allegations he made against his predecessor Manmohan Singh during the Gujarat elections.
As he was about to speak, everyone started shouting and he had no option but to witness everything and keep quiet.
It was his debut speech in the Rajya Sabha which didn’t go the way he wanted. Tendulkar had to initiate discussion on “Right to Play and the future of sports in India”.
“He (Sachin Tendulkar) has earned name for India at the world stage, it is a matter of shame that he was not allowed to speak even when everyone knew it was on today’s agenda. Are only politicians allowed to speak?” said Jaya Bachchan, Rajya Sabha MP.
Tendulkar, a Bharat Ratna winner, remained standing for 10 minutes, tight-lipped, as Opposition members raised slogans, ignoring Chairman Venkaiah Naidu’s calls to come to order.
The ‘Master Blaster‘ will get a chance to speak on Friday as the house was adjourned.
Opposition is demanding apology from PM Narendra Modi for his verbal attack on former PM Manmohan Singh.
