The Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day following a spat between BJP and Congress members after a ruling party member made hawala allegations against the Congress.

The lower house, which saw peaceful proceedings through the day, and also passed a bill, was taking up the Zero Hour when BJP member Kirit Somaiya raised the issue of an alleged hawala operator and claimed that he had nexus with the Congress.

Somaiya claimed that payments worth Rs 4 crore made by a hawala operator had allegedly reached the Congress headquarters.

This led to objections from the Congress benches, while Somaiya was supported by his party members.

As the ruling and opposition members sparred, amid the din Somaiya demanded that the Congress explain where the money came from.

As the din continued, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the house for the day.
