New Delhi: Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned for nearly 20 minutes this morning amid slogan- shouting by Congress members seeking resignation of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over allegations of corruption in DDCA.
As soon as the House met for the day, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said she had disallowed notices of adjournment motion moved by various opposition members including those from Congress and the Left parties on a variety of issues.
In the absence of Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, party chief whip Jyotiraditya Scindia rose to speak asking Speaker to consider their notice.
An apparently peeved Mahajan said, "today I will not stop you from speaking. Speak as much as you want."
But BJP members led by Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy objected to Scindia speaking, saying the House cannot be disrupted daily and the Question Hour should be allowed to continue.
Another Congress member Deepender Singh Hooda wanted to say something, but was disallowed. He later went out of the House.
In the absence of Kharge, Congress members were apparently unsure for some time on how to carry out the protest. Party chief Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi were present in the House.
