The Parliament, after a noisy session on Monday, reconvened today for the ninth sitting in both the houses. 

The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned for the day following an uproar in the house over BJP President Amit Shah's response to Opposition's criticism on the NRC draft list. He said, "Rajiv Gandhi signed Assam accord in 1985, which was similar to NRC. They did not have the courage to implement it, we did".
