New Delhi: Demanding suspension of the Mayawati-led state government in Uttar Pradesh, members of Samajwadi Party created uproar in Parliament. They alleged that SP chief alongwith his son Akhilesh Singh were put under "house arrest".

The Samajwadi Party has given a call for a three-day agitation from Monday to press for the ouster of the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh.

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav wrote a letter to the Speaker of Lok Sabha drawing her attention towards his house arrest in Lucknow. Terming it to be the infringement of his privileges, he urged the Speaker to appropriate action in this regard.

As the House assembled for the day, Speaker Meira Kumar read out the obituary reference to former HRD Minister Arjun Singh who breathed his last on Friday.

The moment the Speaker took up the Question Hour, SP members rushed to the Well claiming that their party chief has been kept under house arrest by the BSP government to prevent them from leading a three-day agitation against the state government.

The Speaker allowed SP member Reoti Raman Singh to raise the matter. The latter informed that Mulayam Singh Yadav and a number of other SP MPs besides scores of party workers have been kept under detention by the UP government.

Leader of the House and Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said he had requested the Home Minister to ascertain the facts and inform the Lok Sabha accordingly.

However, SP members were not pacified by the assurances and stormed the Well once again.

BSP leader Dara Singh Chauhan and a few of his colleagues were seen trying to counter the SP members. NDA convener and JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav was also seen trying to make some point.
