Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit was in the eye of a storm in Parliament on Monday with an agitated Opposition paralysing both the Houses demanding her immediate resignation over alleged irregularities in CWG projects.
It was trouble from the word go, with the NDA seeking suspension of Question Hour and the Left parties giving notices for Adjournment Motion in the Lok Sabha on the CAG observations on the CWG issue.
Opposition NDA members stormed the well leading to the adjournment of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha till noon.
When the two Houses met again, it was a similar story and the presiding officers adjourned the proceedings till Tuesday.In the Lok Sabha, Samajwadi Party members demanded dismissal of the Mayawati government in the wake of reports that Uttar Pradesh has the highest incidence of fake encounters. They trooped into the well, shouting slogans and waving copies of news reports.
In the melee, Deputy Speaker Kariya Munda, who was in the chair, asked ministers to lay the papers listed for the day and allowed introduction of two bills.
As the din continued, he adjourned the proceedings for the day.
In the Rajya Sabha too, BJP members trooped into the well shouting slogans demanding Dikhsit’s resignation.
They were supported by members of Shiv Sena, JD(U), AIADMK and the Left parties, who were on their feet.
Amidst of sloganeering, Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan allowed papers to be laid and adjourned the House for the day.
Earlier, as Speaker Meira Kumar took up the Question Hour, NDA members began shouting slogans against the Delhi government and demanded Dikshit’s resignation contending that the CAG had indicted her in the CWG issue.
Kumar continued with the Question Hour as members of the BJP, Shiv Sena and SP raised slogans in the well. BSP members were seen shouting slogans and countering the SP members.
The Speaker told BJP member Varun Gandhi to ask a supplementary. As Gandhi stood up to ask his question, BJP member Bijoya Chakraborty signalled him against doing so.
