Rajya Sabha disrupted over conversion issue

New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha was disrupted Monday as the opposition refused to allow any business in the house without taking up a discussion on conversion issue.

Raising the issue in the upper house, Congress leader Anand Sharma said: "We have given a notice for suspension of question hour. There is a serious situation in the country."

"An organisation that calls itself a social organisation, has started a controversial programme on 'ghar wapasi'," Sharma said.

Earlier, AIADMK members raised slogans over a question being asked in railway employment examination on the removal of party chief J. Jayalalithaa from the chief minister's post.

The Trinamool Congress, meanwhile, alleged that the central government was controlling Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into Saradha chit-fund scam.

"The president of BJP is writing the script for the CBI. The CBI is being used for political vendetta," Trinamool leader Derek O'Brien said.

When the house met at 12 noon, again protests continued forcing the chairman to adjourn the house for another 10 minutes.
