NEW DELHI, Dec 17 - Parliament was today repeatedly disrupted as Congress created uproar over the �alarming� developments in Arunachal Pradesh, alleging efforts to �destabilise� its government there and targeting the Union Government which asserted that it had no role in it.

Congress members also staged a walkout from Lok Sabha while alleging �murder of democracy� and �constitutional crisis� in the State. Some other parties like JD(U) and Left supported their contention.

The main opposition party forced repeated adjournments of Rajya Sabha and ensured its early adjournment for the day with its members continuously raising slogans in the well.

In the Lok Sabha, the matter was raised by Leader of Congress Mallikarjun Kharge who said there was a �constitutional crisis� in Arunachal Pradesh and accused the BJP of creating a divide among the Congress MLAs in the State.

�What is happening in Arunachal Pradesh in undemocratic, unconstitutional. They are killing democracy, destroying democracy...,� Kharge said.

He made a scathing attack on the role of the Governor but Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai ordered that all remarks against the Governor should be expunged.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said �there is no role of the Central Government. Yesterday, the Chief Minister went to meet the Governor for discussions, but there they accused and abused the Governor. They are bringing shame.

�They have locked the Assembly, surprising things are happening. You may quit if you don�t have majority. You cannot discuss the conduct of the Governor... Decision of Governor cannot be questioned. If they have any problem they should go to the Court,� Naidu said.

He said the Governor has �acted within the Constitution and he has been informing the President (of the happenings)�. � PTI
