NEW DELHI, Aug 30 � An adamant BJP continued to disrupt Parliament for the seventh consecutive day today over coal block allocation but the government pushed through two Bills amid growing isolation of NDA among non-UPA parties.

The Chemical Weapons Convention (Amendment) Bill and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (Amendment) Bill were passed in the Lok Sabha by voice vote without any discussion within a few minutes amid din created by BJP members demanding resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

No other business could be transacted as uproarious scenes were repeated in both the Houses with BJP members storming the Well soon after they assembled for the day.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned once for an hour and then for the day. The Rajya Sabha saw two adjournments till 2 pm before being finally adjourned for the day.

JD-U, which has been uneasy over the BJP�s tactics of disrupting Parliament, today rallied behind it in demanding resignation of the Prime Minister taking �moral responsibility� and cancellation of allotted coal blocks.

The disruptions by BJP and some of its NDA allies angered other non-UPA parties. Samajwadi Party took the lead and was supported by Left parties and TDP in condemning the behaviour of NDA and demanding restoration of normal functioning of Parliament.

In both Houses, members of NDA allies Shiv Sena and SAD were on their feet but they did not go into the Well while most of the JD-U members remained seated. � PTI
