Minutes after the Rajya Sabha Chairman read that he has received "14 notices under Rule 267, and that nine among those have been received from the Congress", the ruckus started.

The Parliament is adjourned almost every other day.    

Meanwhile, the ruling BJP members sought an apology from Gandhi over his democracy in India remarks in London and criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
