New Delhi, Nov 19 (ANI): Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned till Monday as opposition members continued to demand a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into 2G spectrum allocation scam.

As soon as the Lok Sabha met for the day, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) rushed into well of the house shouting, "We want JPC".

Some Congress members from Karnataka came to the aisle of the House with posters dubbing Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa "corrupt".

Throw out corrupt Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa," read one of the posters.

As the din continued, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House.

The Rajya Sabha also witnessed similar scenes.

As soon as the Upper House assembled, Chairman Hamid Ansari took up the Question Hour.

Opposition BJP and AIADMK members rushed to the well of the house, demanding the setting up of a Joint Parliamentary Committee to go into the 2G spectrum issue.

As the uproar persisted, Ansari adjourned the house till Monday.

This is the sixth working day in a row that both houses have witnessed pandemonium followed by repeated adjournments.

The 2G spectrum allocation has reportedly caused an alleged loss of Rs1.76 lakh crores to the Government, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has stated in a damning report.

The report further states that A. Raja had no apparent logical or valid reasons to ignore the advice of the Law and Finance Ministries while allocating telecom spectrum to several firms in 2007-08. (ANI)
