Eight opposition members of the Rajya Sabha, suspended yesterday over the massive chaos when controversial farm bills were passed on Sunday, spent the night on the lawns of the parliament complex and declared that they were on an indefinite protest. They had yesterday refused to leave the Rajya Sabha, which was adjourned five times. This morning, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh went to them with tea and served it in cups, but they rebuffed his "tea diplomacy", calling him "anti-farmer". Prime Minister Narendra Modi came out strongly in support of Harivansh. "To personally serve tea to those who attacked and insulted him a few days ago as well as those sitting on Dharna shows that Shri Harivansh Ji has been blessed with a humble mind and a big heart. It shows his greatness. I join the people of India in congratulating Harivansh Ji," PM Modi tweeted.
