delhi Updated: Jul 20, 2009 16:35 IST

BJP and Samajwadi Party on Monday sought probe into the firing at an army recruitment drive at Chandauli in Uttar Pradesh.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour in Rajya Sabha, Nand Kishore Yadav (SP) alleged that senior army officials showed favouritism during the physical test of the candidates who had lined up for recruitment.

He said trouble broke after the candidates noticed favouritism being shown in the recruitment process.

While four people died in the firing, the district administration has claimed loss of one life, he said, demanding a high-level probe to find out who ordered the firing.

Kalraj Mishra (BJP) said there was no coordination between army and the district administration and demanded a high-level probe in the matter.

In another zero-hour mention, M V Mysura Reddy (TDP) referred to the alleged corruption in the AICTE and pointed out the CBI raid in the premises of its Chairman and Member Secretary.

Ali Anwar Ansari (JD-U) protested against the move to shift the power plant of BHEL from Patna to Durgapur and said it was a conspiracy to aggravate the power crisis in Bihar.

P Rajeev (CPI-M) sought immediate relief package to Kerala to meet the damage caused by the heavy rains which has claimed nearly 100 lives. He was supported by P J Kurien (Congress).
