New Delhi: The Karnataka crisis spilled over to the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, with Congress members storming into the well of the House, forcing Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn proceedings twice.

Congress leader B.K. Hariprasad said an adjournment motion notice was given to the Chairman under Rule 267.

"The Congress has eight MPs in Rajya Sabha and we had given a notice to the Chairman to raise the Karnataka issue in Rajya Sabha, but the Chairman did not allow it. We will raise the demand again in the House once it reassembles," Hariprasad said.

Amid the political situation in Karnataka where 30 ministers of the ruling Congress-Janata Dal Secular (JD(S)) coalition have resigned, Congress MPs Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and K Suresh had also given an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over the matter.

More than a dozen members of the legislative Assembly (MLAs) from the Congress had tendered their resignation over the weekend. As such, the tally of the ruling coalition could come down drastically and thus threaten the future of the government.

The Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) or JDS plunged into crisis over the weekend with a series of resignations coming in from legislators of both parties.
