【New Delhi】The Lok Sabha on March 02 witnessed unruly scenes as MPs of the Congress and ruling BJP pushed and shoved each other over the Opposition's insistence that Home Minister Amit Shah should resign, taking responsibility for last week's riots in Delhi.
Expressing his anguish over the ruckus that forced four adjournments, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla finally adjourned the House until Tuesday (March 09).
Amid slogans of 'Amit Shah murdabad' (Down with Amit Shah), when the Speaker initiated discussions on the tax settlement bill, Congress MPs Gaurav Gogoi and Ravneet Singh Bittu holding the black banner went to the Treasury benches where BJP's Sanjay Jaiswal was speaking on the 'Vivaad Se Vishwas' Bill. BJP members, including Ramesh Bidhuri and Nishikant Dubey, then rushed to the Well and in the melee, some Congress MPs tore papers and tossed them in the air. Members from both sides then began pushing and shoving each till the proceedings were adjourned till 3 p.m.
