New Delhi: The Lok Sabha on Tuesday witnessed two brief adjournments during Question Hour after the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) members created a ruckus demanding action against former finance minister P. Chidambaram's son over corruption charges.
Soon after the house met, AIADMK members trooped near Speaker's podium holdings newspapers reports. They were raising slogans like "we want justice".
Amid the din Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the house till 11.15 a.m.
When the house reassembled, AIADMK members again trooped near the speaker's podium shouting slogans.
