Uproar in Parliament over Robert Vadra's land deals, Sri Lankan war crimes

New Delhi: Both the Houses of Parliament had to be adjourned twice on Tuesday after the Opposition took on the government over Congress President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's land deals. Questions have earlier been raised over Vadra's land deals in Haryana and Rajasthan.

Irregularities had been highlighted by an IAS officer Ashok Khemka. The BJP has questioned the legality of the land deal transactions. It has accused the Rajasthan and Haryana governments of colluding with Vadra.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned after BJP MPs went to the well of the House demanding discussion and inquiry into the land deals of Vadra. Meanwhile, the DMK and AIADMK also protested against Sri Lankan war crimes.

Members of Congress ally DMK trooped into the Well as their leader TR Baalu waved pictures of the 12-year-old son of slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran. AIADMK members too rushed to the Well raising slogans on the plight of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka.
