Lok Sabha was adjourned twice on Friday after the opposition demanded home minister P Chidambaram’s dismissal on corruption charges.

BJP, JD-U and AIADMK members stormed the well of the House demanding his dismissal as soon as the day started.

Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy had on Thursday accused Chidambaram, then finance minister, of delaying permission to sell Aircel to Malaysia-based Maxis in 2006 to benefit a firm allegedly controlled by his son, Karti.

The firm, M/s Advantage Strategic Consulting Pvt Ltd, responded on Friday, saying their lawyers would "take appropriate legal action".

“He should be dismissed,” BJP’s Yashwant Sinha said in the Lok Sabha. Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House.

The disruption continued when the House reassembled, leading to another adjournment.
