New Delhi: The Parliament witnessed another stormy day on Friday with both the Houses of Parliament adjourned for the day after the main Opposition BJP refused to budge from its demand of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation after CAG report indicting the government over allocation of coal blacks.

In the Rajya Sabha, the BJP members were on their feet demanding PM’s resignation soon after the House met again at 12 noon on Friday. Similar scenes were witnessed in the Lok Sabha forcing the adjournment of both the Houses for the day.

BJP has demanded cancellation of all 142 coal blocks allocated to private firms since 2006 and insisted that these be auctioned.

The deadlock in both the Houses of Parliament over the CAG report on coal block allocation entered its eight day on Friday.

India's official auditor had last week revealed that the lack of transparency in the allocation of coal blocks to private players resulted in a loss of a whopping Rs.1.85 lakh crore (USD 37 billion) to the exchequer as on March 11 last year.
