Ayodhya yatra: RS adjourned thrice amid uproar

New Delhi, Aug 26, 2013 (PTI):

Uproar over VHP's controversial Ayodhya yatra today stalled the functioning of Rajya Sabha with SP and BJP members forcing three adjournments during pre-lunch sitting.

Soon after the House met for the day, SP members shouted slogans alleging an attack by BJP workers on their Delhi office, a charge strongly refuted by the main opposition party.

The issue forced two adjournments before Zero Hour as Chairman Hamid Ansari's repeated efforts to restore normalcy in the House did not yield any result.

When the House resumed at noon, BJP members came in aisle shouting slogans.

Deputy Chairman P J Kurien, who was in the Chair, criticised this saying leaders of parties had decided that they will not raise slogans in the House. Kurien also said the slogans will not go on record.

"It (slogan) won't go on record. It is indiscipline," Kurien said.

Members from BJP also shouted slogans but they did not come in the aisle. While Leader of the Opposition Arun Jaitley remained seated, other BJP members were on their feet.

During Question Hour, two Congress members from Seemandhra region kept shouting in the Well holding placards demanding united Andhra Pradesh.

They later went back to their seats but kept protesting waving placards from there.

Earlier, senior Congress leader B K Hariprasad, who was elected from Karnataka to the Upper House, took oath.
