After Swamy now it's whole opposition against Chidambaram asking his resignation

New Delhi, Fri, 27 Apr 2012 NI Wire

Earlier Janta Party leader Subramanian Swamy and now whole opposition today targeted Indian Finance Minister P Chidambaram and asked for his resignation for allegedly helping his son in getting financial benefits in a telecom deal when he was on the finance ministry post.

Targeting to Chidambaram, senior Bhartiya Janta Party leader Yashwant Sinha said, Chidambaram has indulged in massive corruption. He should be dismissed as home minister immediately." He was found shouting in ruckus.

The disturbance and noise was so annoying that Speakers had to disrupt the houses till 2 p.m. even though the home minister was not present in the house.

Janata Dal-United (JD-U) chief Sharad Yadav and his party MPs soon joined the BJP members in anti-Chidambaram protests.

The opposition MPs cited Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy's allegations that Chidambaram had delayed permission for the sale of Aircel to Malaysia-based Maxis in 2006 when he was finance minister so that his son, Karthi, was financially benefitted.

Swamy's allegations gave fresh ammunition to opposition guns who had in the first two days of the reconvened budget session put the government on the mat for alleged payoffs in the Bofors artillery deal of 1986.

Some BJP MPs staged protests near Speaker Meira Kumar's podium and disrupted the crucial question hour.

The speaker first tried to restore peace in the house asking protesting MPs to go back to their seats. When they didn't relent, she tried to ignore them by allowing the question hour to continue that went for about half an hour till 11.30 a.m.

But the MPs intensified their protests forcing Meira Kumar to adjourn the house till noon.

Pandemonium returned when the house resumed at 12. Amid noisy protests, the speaker allowed some business documents to be laid down in the house before adjourning the house till 2 pm.
