Lok Sabha adjourned till 2 p.m. over Mumbai violence, Assam riots

Monday August 13, 2012 02:30:39 PM, IANS

Shiv Sena member Anant Geete raised the issue of Saturday's violence in Mumbai that claimed two lives and left over 50 people injured. The Shiv Sena demanded a statement from the government. Congress member Sanjay Nirupam countered Geete by saying that the government was taking action.

However, angry opposition members refused to be placated and they rushed to the speaker's podium. The Shiv Sena members were waving copies of the Sena mouthpiece, Saamna, on the Mumbai violence.

Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the house till 2 p.m. amid uproarious scenes.

Earlier, the house was adjourned till 12 noon after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members demanded that black money stashed abroad be brought back.

Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the house after BJP members refused to allow proceedings to be run and rushed to the speaker's podium.

They kept shouting when Minister for Social Justice Mukul Wasnik was replying on the issue of manual scavenging.

Wasnik said the government was bringing a new bill and would do everything to end the practice, but his reply was drowned in the ruckus.

This provoked Speaker Meira Kumar to say that she would have liked it if the members had participated in the discussion related to the issue.

The BJP's agitation in the lower house on the issue of comes as yoga guru Baba Ramdev has threatened a "revolution" unless the government brings back black money stashed abroad.
