Parliament was adjourned till 3 pm on Wednesday as the BJP attacked the government over the killing of Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir.

The main opposition demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh make a statement and accused defence minister AK Antony of having misled both houses on the issue.

Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were disrupted for the second consecutive day and adjourned till 3 pm over the killing of Indian soldiers Tuesday by Pakistani troops.

As soon as the lower house assembled, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj questioned the government on the differences in the statements made by Antony and the defence ministry on the ambush Tuesday.

"The defence minister gave a statement but we came to know later that the defence ministry also gave a press statement," Swaraj said in the house.
