New Delhi: The issue of police firing in Nandigram, West Bengal stalled Parliament proceedings once again on Monday.
Both the Houses were adjourned till noon for a fourth day in the row. Angry BJP and Shiromani Akali Dal members trooped into the well raising slogans against the Left Front government in West Bengal and demanding suspension of the Question Hour to discuss the issue.
Repeated requests by Deputy Speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal failed to restore normalcy forcing him to adjourn the House till 1200 hours.
Atwal maintained that no adjournment motion on a state subject could be allowed. In the Rajya Sabha, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj raised the issue as soon as the House met for the day.
She said a BJP delegation had visited Nandigram and the party wanted to explain the situation in the House for which the Question Hour should be suspended.
Lone Trinamool Congress member Dinesh Trivedi also raised the matter. Sensing the mood, Chairman Bhairon Singh Shekhawat adjourned the House till noon, barely minutes after it had assembled.
