Meira Kumar New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): The price rise issue stalled both houses of Parliament for the fourth successive day on Friday, forcing its adjournment till 12 noon.

The trouble erupted in Rajya Sabha as soon as the house assembled at 11 a.m. The opposition was demanding that question hour be suspended and the house discuss the spiralling food prices.

The arguments raged on in the Lok Sabha for some time, with Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Bansal appealing for the opposition to settle down. It was then also adjourned till 12 noon.

On Wednesday, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar rejected the opposition’s demand for a vote on the price rise issue.

Kumar said the price rise is a matter of concern and may be discussed in any form other than the adjournment motion. (ANI)
