The second phase of the Budget session of Parliament began on a stormy note on Thursday with both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha adjourning till noon following uproar over OBC quota and other issues.
Both the Houses were thrown into pandemonium soon after swearning-in of new members and obituary references.
RJD, DMK and PMK members were agitated over the OBC quota issue while CPI(M) members were seen targeting BJP over the human trafficking case involving its MP Babubhai Katara.
In the Lok Sabha, RJD's Devendra Prasad Yadav was heard remarking that a situation of confrontation between the judiciary and the legislature appeared to have arisen over providing reservation to OBCs in educational institutions.
In the Rajya Sabha, Dinesh Trivedi (Trinamool Congress) sought to raise the killing of farmers at Nandigram amid Left members' demand for suspension of Question Hour to discuss the Katara issue.
RJD and DMK members sought to raise the OBC quota issue while BJP members resorted to slogan-shouting. Nothing could be heard in the din.
