Highlight Story


The Indo-US civil nuclear deal continued to rock Parliament with agitated NDA and Third Front members vociferously demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee to go into the agreement leading to adjournment of both Houses for an hour on Thursday.

In the Lok Sabha, the opposition members were in no mood to listen to Speaker Somnath Chatterjee's repeated pleas to allow the Question Hour.

NDA members chanted slogans "we want JPC" as BJP leader VK Malhotra demanded suspension of the Question Hour.

The Speaker said it was unfortunate that such disruptions were taking place daily. The trouble began soon after Suman Mahato (JMM) took oath as a member of the House.
