New Delhi, Mar 12: Amid an uproar raised by BJP-Shiv Sena members over the Kerala High Court observation on the recurring clashes between Left and Sangh Privar workers in Kannur and CPI(M) blaming RSS for the crisis, the Lok Sabha was adjouned till 1300 hrs.

As soon as the House assembled at 1100 hrs, the BJP-Shiv Sena members got up on their seats waving the news-item pertaining to the High Court observation that said ''the only solution (to end the clashes) seems to be timely intervention by the Centre by deploying sufficient forces which will not yield to political or plutocratic clout.'' Shouting slogans against the CPI (M) dubbing the party as ''murderer'', BJP Deputy leader in the House Vijay Kumar Malhotra said their contention that ruling Left was behind the killings of RSS workers in Kerala had been upheld by the Court.

Mr Malhotra pleaded that the Question Hour should be suspended allowing the discussion on the Kerala Court's observation. But Speaker Somnath Chatterjee did not allow it and insisted that the matter could only be taken up after Question Hour. On this, the BJP-Shiv Sena MPs became adamant and continued to raise slogans against the CPI (M) saying that ''CPI(M) ki gundagardi nahi chalehgi'' (Hooliganism of CPI(M) will not be allowed).

On the other side, the Left Parties' MPs too were on their feet opposing the Sangh Privar members. This led to rumpus in the House which lasted for about 10 minutes.

The BJP interpreted Kerala High Court's observations as passing of 'strictures' on the ruling Left Front government in the state. The Court said the police in the state had been 'politicalised and ordered CBI probe into the murder of a newspaper agent in Kannur.

The clashes between the Left and RSS workers in Kerala had travelled to Delhi when the Sangh Parivar workers attacked the headquarters of CPI(M) here. In the violence that ensued, some workers from both sides were injured and the incident rocked Parliament for the past two days.

Earlier the Speaker's plea for restoring peace in the House were ignored by the BJP-Shiv Sena members who continued to stand on their feet all along.

Expressing agony and strong displeasure over the uproar, the Speaker said, ''Let the people see in the country that Parliament has been turned into a public street and all sensible people are now concerned how the members are committing murder of Indian democracy....'' With his strong observation on the ongoing pandemonium, the Speaker adjnoured the House till 1300 hours.
