TDP leader and Civil Aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju was not present in the House even though it was the question day of his ministry.

When the Upper House reassembled at 1430 hours and took up the Private Members' Business, Pramod Tewari (Cong) tried to raise a point of order on the issue of the banking scam.
Nearly immediately thereafter, opposition members again stormed the Well raising slogans and displaying placards.
Members from the TDP, AIADMK, TRS and TMC trooped into the Well, with many holding placards and raising slogans. TDP and YSR Congress MPs continued their protests on the demand for special status to Andhra Pradesh.
AIADMK members were near the podium demanding a Cauvery Management Board.
