Earlier in the day, both lower and upper houses were adjourned sine-die as the winter session of the Parliament came to an end.
The winter session of the Parliament, which started on December 15 has generally been a stormy affair with Opposition creating ruckus over a number of issues be it PM Modi's "colluding with Pakistan" remark or the Triple Talaq Bill that could not see the light of the day in Rajya Sabha.
