New Delhi:  Two Rajya Sabha members were too ill to attend the parliamentary debate on FDI in retail but they came for the voting - with one arriving on a stretcher.

N. Janardhana Reddy, a Congress member from Andhra Pradesh, arrived in a wheelchair to vote. He was in the lobby while the debate was taking place and later entered the house to vote.

The other member, Janardhan Waghmare, a Congress member from Maharashtra, arrived in the Rajya Sabha lobby on a stretcher. He did not come inside the house and was allowed by Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari to vote from the corridor.
