Parliament was adjourned till noon today amid a din as the BJP persisted with its demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation provoking Congress members to raise slogans.

The deadlock in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha over the CAG report on coal block allocation issue entered its seventh day as the Houses met after a day’s break on account of Onam.

In the Lok Sabha, Speaker Meira Kumar took up Question Hour but nothing could be heard in the din.

BJP’s slogans of Pradhan Mantri Istifa do (Prime Minister should resign) were countered by the Congress members who chanted Pradhan Mantri Zindabad.

AIADMK and DMK members too were heard raising slogans against the Government for training Sri Lankan forces at airbases in India.
