Lok Sabha today witnessed uproar during Question Hour with opposition targeting the government on several issues including alleged dubious land deals of Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, violence in Kishtwar and solar scam in Kerala.

Soon after obituary references, members from various parties were on their feet to raise different issues.

Though there was pandemonium on several matters, it was the Vadra issue that led to an adjournment till noon first and then till 2 p.m.

Raising the issue, Yashwant Sinha (BJP) said, “Though there are several business schools which teach models of making money, there is one highly connected person who did not go to any such school but has given a model where no investment is made but windfall gains of thousands of crores are made.”

Congress members were on their feet in protest. Sanjay Nirupam walked into the Well and protested against BJP’s charge.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath and his deputy Rajiv Shukla, both seated in the front row, were on their feet. BJP members countered them from their seats.

With the House in disorder, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned it till noon.

Earlier, Yogi Adityanath (BJP), who was asked by the Speaker to speak on violence in Kishtwar, said the government in Jammu and Kashmir has not woken up to the threat posed by separatist forces.

He charged the state administration with not taking appropriate measures when violence broke out on August 9.

He warned that the situation is fast turning into one similar to 1990 when “Hindus and Sikhs were forced to migrate” from the Valley.
