No government business could be transacted as the House was adjourned repeatedly as members of BSP and Congress pressed for ouster of Singh from the Council of Ministers as well as Parliament for 'dog' analogy after the killing of two Dalit children in Haryana.

Adding to the pandemonium, members of Samajwadi Party protested against Bhagwat's remarks that 'ground should be prepared' for building Ram Temple in Ayodhya and demanded
action against him.

The government ruled out any action against Singh, arguing that he has already clarified on the issue. With regard to Bhagwat's comments, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said people have 'fundamental right' to reiterate commitment for construction of a temple but the government will respect the court's decision.

Ruckus began soon after the House met for the day and mourned the death of former member M A M Ramaswamy. BSP chief Mayawati said the government's attitude over Singh's comments was 'very sad and unfortunate'.

As Deputy Chairman P J Kurien disallowed her and asked her to give a notice for making a statement, her party members rushed into the Well raising anti-government slogans. Not to be left behind, Naresh Agarwal (SP) raised the issue of Bhagwat's comments.
