Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Aug 28 (IANS) Both houses of parliament were adjourned Tuesday as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members persisted with their demand for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation over allocation of coal blocks.

The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were adjourned till 12 noon soon after they met as BJP members raised slogans demanding Manmohan Singh’s resignation.

The opposition has been stalling parliament proceedings since last week following a Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report that suggested a presumptive loss of Rs.1.86 lakh crore ($37 billion) in coal blocks allocations when the ministry was under the prime minister.
