NEW DELHI, Feb 22 � Following uproar over the violent incidents in Goalpara district, Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde is likely to make a statement in the Parliament.

As soon as House assembled to hear the statement by Shinde on the bomb blasts in Hyderabad, the two AGP MPs, Biren Baishya and Kumar Deepak Das interfered demanding Shinde�s statement. They said that the House should discuss both killings by terrorists, as well as security forces.

Baishya and Das alleged that 24 innocent persons were massacred in Assam. The AGP MPs had been raising their demands since the afternoon.

When Chairman of Rajya Sabha Hamid Ansari, who was on the chair, disallowed the discussion, the two MPs rushed to the Well of the House to press with their demand. Even as the interruptions continued, Deputy Leader of Opposition, Ravi Shankar Prasad of BJP intervened and supported the two MPs, stating that killings in Assam also needed to be discussed.
