New Delhi | Lok Sabha proceedings were cut short today as noisy scenes prevailed after a BJP member made bribery allegations against the Congress.

As the House was discussing matters of public interest, BJP’s Kirit Somaiya claimed that payments worth Rs 4 crore made by a hawala operator had allegedly reached the Congress.

The issue sparked an uproar and shouting from the BJP benches as some Congress members sought to counter it.

Somaiya’s submission was not fully audible amid the din.

With the uproar continuing, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the proceedings for the day little past 1530 hours.
The House will now meet again on August 8.
