Congress Didn't Allow Sachin To Speak In Rajya Sabha, So A Day Later He Took To Facebook 

Rajya Sabha MP and India's most loved cricketer Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was supposed to deliver his maiden speech in the house on Thursday. People on Twitter were waiting eagerly for the cricketer to address the ministers at 2 pm. And as the clock struck 2.00 pm, Sachin stood there glancing at his audience, with a sweet smile. Yes, that's the humble Bharat Ratna winner Sachin for you. But, something unexpected happened: 

It started with Congress MP's 

The MPs of the Congress party were seen misbehaving as they shouted at the top of their voices demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's presence. The members of the party also shouted: Pradhanmantri ko bulao (call the prime minister).

They also lashed at Sachin 

The MPs felt that Sachin had not attended a lot of Rajya Sabha sessions and it needed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's attention. 

Sachin was representing the sports community

Sachin had prepared to talk about 'Right to play and the future of sports in India'. A topic that every sportsperson thinks deserves some attention in our country. 

The frustrated Chairman in the house 

Venkaiah Naidu, Chairman of Rajya Sabha tried to calm the agitated politicians several times but when he failed to do so...

He had to call off the discussion and move ahead 

The helpless Chairman tried his level best to calm people down and ask the concerned people to not film the entire incident, but when he failed to do so he had to carry forward the discussion and ask the next person to speak. 

Jaya Bachchan's reaction on the same

Amitabh Bachchan's wife Jaya Bachchan thinks that it is a matter of shame to treat a person like Sachin Tendulkar in such disrespectful manner. 

Here is how Twitter reacted

It was predictable, says a Twitterati. 

Here's the complete video

The video showcases how busy Congress MPs were that they almost forgot it is not right to shout in the house.
