Since TDP and BJP's ties have severed and their differences reached pinnacle, Chandrababu chose to settle with 2 Rajya Sabha seats and doesn't want to take any risk at the moment due to public anger on BJP. The only Congress member protesting in the Well was K V P Ramachandra Rao from Andhra Pradesh.
As chairman Venkaiah Naidu tried to pacify the members and conduct the Zero Hour, protesting members trooped into the Well holding placards and shouting slogans.
Soon after the House resumed at 2 p.m. following its first adjournment of the day, the National Democratic Alliance constituent Telegu Desam Party (TDP) and some opposition parties, including the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), created a ruckus pressing for their demands.

For the sixth day in a row, members continued to protest on issues such as bank fraud, special status to Andhra Pradesh and setting up of Cauvery water management board.
Congress - the main opposition party - had earlier moved a notice in the Rajya Sabha under rule 168 seeking a discussion on the billion dollars Punjab National Bank fraud case. However, as the pandemonium continued, Kurien adjourned the proceedings of the House for the day after barely a couple of minutes.
Amid the noisy protests, Ahluwalia laid on the table of the House the statement regarding the status of implementation of recommendations contained in the 35th report of the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Rural Development on Demands for Grants (2017-18).
