New Delhi, Mar 22 (PTI): The first part of the Budget Session of Parliament concluded with chaos on Friday as some members of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) broke mikes on the Chairman's table in the Rajya Sabha.
The Lok Sabha failed to transact any business for the third consecutive day as proceedings remained paralysed over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
On the last day, the Rajya Sabha could not function properly as members from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and the AIADMK forced repeated adjournments.
The Budget session, which began on February 22, will resume on April 22 after a four-week recess. The Session will conclude on May 10.
However, just as curtains were drawn on the first part, Rajya Sabha saw bedlam as two of the four mikes on the Chairman's table were wrenched out and broken by AIADMK members, who were agitating over Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
AIADMK member V Maitreyan was in the lead in this act during which papers were torn and thrown up in the air and some stationery damaged.
Soon after Renuka Chowdhury, who was in the Chair, adjourned the House, and made certain remarks against the protesting members, which infuriated the DMK members further.
Chowdhury left the House but Congress members Ambika Soni, Jairam Ramesh and R P N Singh had to intervene to placate the DMK members.
DMK member Tiruchi Siva got so agitated that he required medical help and an ambulance was called as a standby.
The matter ended after Chowdhury returned to apologise.
