New Delhi: After strident protests staged by BJP in both the Houses of Parliament, the ruling government on Friday said "any excess" by the police during an agitation by BJP workers in the capital would be examined.

Home Minister P Chidambaram said in the Rajya Sabha during Zero Hour that he was ‘sorry’ if any political worker was injured on Thursday.

Earlier, the Question Hour could not take place in Rajya Sabha as BJP members created ado against police atrocity demanding a response from the Home Minister which led to adjournment of the House barely five minutes after it met for the day.

"What happened on Thursday reminds me of emergency days. Is it democracy or dictatorship? Many people were injured and brutally assaulted (in the lathicharge)...If someone protests against corruption will you beat him like this...," senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said.

The issue was also raised in the Lok Sabha during Question Hour.
Chidambaram said he has asked for video tape of the incident which captures most of the scenes of agitation and promised to see "if there is any indication of any excess".

Chidambaram said that a Samyutka Morcha of Angandwadi workers comprising odd 500 women was also holding agitation during the same time at barricade number 2 and 3 and the BJP workers as such could not have been allowed to go beyond.

Leader of the Opposition Arun Jaitley requested Chidambaram to personally ascertain the facts.
