Serial bomb blasts in Uttar Pradesh rocked Rajya Sabha on Monday leading to adjournment of the House till noon.

As soon as the House met for the day, Opposition NDA and Samajwadi Party members raised the issue demanding resignation of Home Minister Shivraj Patil.

They raised slogans and trooped into the well even as Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Suresh Pachauri said the government was willing to make a statement on the blasts.

Chairman Mohammad Ansari said the government was ready for a discussion on the issue on Monday itself.

This failed to pacify the Opposition members who raised slogans demanding Patil's resignation.

As the din continued, the Chairman adjourned the House till noon.
