Parliament adjourned for contineous 12th day

For the 12th straight working day, both the houses of Parliament were adjourned for the day on Monday without conducting any bussiness as the members persisted with their demand for a Joint Parliamentary probe into the 2G spectrum allocation. The government's every effort to break the logjam has yielded no result and question hours in both houses of parliament were derailed again with an unrelenting opposition persisting with its demand that a parliamentary panel probe the controversial second generation telephony spectrum allocation in 2008.
A thinly-attended Lok Sabha saw members thumping their desks after Speaker Meira Kumar lauded the performance of Indian sportspersons in the recently concluded Asian Games. But as soon as the Speaker took up the Question Hour, member were in the well demanding a JPC probe into the allocation of 2G spectrum. They waved newspaper reports on various alleged scams. The speaker then adjourned the house till 12 noon. When the house resumed the sitting at noon, the sloganeering continued and deputy speaker Karia Munda ordered the adjournment of the Lok Sabha till Tuesday.
