New Delhi: Opposition on Thursday disrupted proceedings in Parliament by vociferously demanding the resignation of Home Minister P Chidambaram for his alleged role in the controversial 2G spectrum allocations.
Members of BJP-led NDA created uproar in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha to seek Chidambaram's resignation in the wake of a Delhi court allowing Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy to become a witness in the 2G spectrum case.
The Lok Sabha could not conduct any business as it saw trouble as soon as it met for the day at 11 am, forcing its adjournment till noon and then again till 2 pm.
In the Rajya Sabha, NDA members created uproar towards the end of Question Hour prompting Chairman Hamid Ansari to adjourn the House for ten minutes till noon and then again till 2 pm.
As soon as Speaker Meira Kumar called for the Question Hour in the Lok Sabha, NDA members were on their feet demanding resignation of Chidambaram.
DMK member T R Baalu was heard demanding a discussion on the Mullaperiyar dam issue in Parliament while some other members trooped into the Well and raised slogans.
BJP members continued to raise slogans 'Griha Mantri Istifa Do (Home Minister resign)' from their seats.
With unruly scenes continuing, the Speaker adjourned the House till noon.
Similar scenes were witnessed when the House met again at 12 noon. After papers were laid and CPI member Gurudas Dasgupta rose to initiate the discussion on price rise, NDA members started shouting and demanded that Chidambaram should step down.
