Cong creates ruckus in Parliament

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 9 - The Congress today created a storm in Parliament and disrupted proceedings over Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s charge at a poll rally that an Italian court had named Sonia Gandhi in the AgustaWestland chopper bribery case.

The Rajya Sabha saw four adjournments in the first two hours because of the continued uproar and sloganeering by Congress members, leading to washout of the Zero Hour and Question Hour.

�Narendra Modi should apologise. Bluffmaster should apologise,� shouted members of the Congress in the Rajya Sabha, which failed to transact any business except one query during the Question Hour.

In the Lok Sabha too, the issue generated heat soon after it assembled for the day with the Congress members raising the matter.

The Congress questioned how the Prime Minister could make such allegations when the Defence Minister had not stated this in his reply to debates on the controversy in both the Houses last week. The Opposition party wanted to know which court Modi was quoting. �Prime Minister should come to the House� and reply, Congress members chanted. � PTI
