Amid pandemonium over the triple talaq bill, which was tabled by the Centre on Wednesday, the Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till tomorrow.

While the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accused the Congress of "raising Dalit violence issue to stall tabling of triple talaq bill", the opposition party hit back saying that they condemn the statement by Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, calling the government "anti-Dalit". Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma moved a notice stating that the triple talaq bill be referred to a Select Committee of Rajya Sabha. He also proposed names of members who could be part of the committee.
