The Congress members trooped into the Well raising slogans, forcing three adjournments - the first time for 10 minutes, then till noon and thereafter again till 2 pm, alleging that the government's statements disputing Selja's remarks were 'misleading'.

Selja had created a stir during the debate on commitment to the Constitution yesterday claiming that she was asked about her caste when she had visited a temple in Dwarka town of Gujarat as a Minister during UPA rule.

As soon as the House met and took up the Zero Hour today, Leader of the House Arun Jaitley referred to the issue and said that Selja had, in fact, said very 'complimentary words' during her visit to the Dwarka temple in February 2013.

He said Selja had also written positive things about her experience at the temple and there was no complaint. Jaitley also read out Selja's written comments at the temple.
