Rajya Sabha disrupted again

New Delhi, March 2 (IANS) The Rajya Sabha was disrupted once again on Wednesday as opposition members raised various issues.

AIADMK members raised the issue of investments made by former finance minister P. Chidambaram’s son Karti, while Congress members referred to another newspaper report which said Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel’s daughter’s partner was given land at around 92 percent concessional rate.

As per a report, business associates of Gujarat chief minister’s daughter Anar Patel got 422 acres of land in 2010 from the state government at Rs.15 per square metre — a huge 91.6 percent discount on the government’s stamp duty rate of Rs.180 per square metre.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi demanded the mention of Gujarat case to be expunged, and went ahead to say that possibly the Congress also wanted to discuss the allegations against Chidambaram and his son.

In the ruckus, Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien first adjourned the house for 10 minutes and then till noon.
