Pranab Mukherjee loses cool in RS
New Delhi, Dec 1: The usually calm and composed Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee lost his cool in the Rajya Sabha as he was constantly interrupted while answering questions on price rise.

When Congress member Rajiv Shukla raised a query seeking details on the shooting prices of edible items and the Government's steps to counter them, Pranab Mukherjee got up to answer.

While he was replying to the query, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) member Brinda Karat interrupted Mukherjee demanding to know what the Government was doing to check the price of sugar which is selling at Rs 40 per kg.

And when he was answering her question, other members of the Left front started shouting that the Government had failed to check the prices of essential items.

Loosing his cool, Pranab Mukherjee shouted, "Don't show your temper here. Show it somewhere else."
