July 23, 2004 13:28 IST
Amid pandemonium over the Sibu Soren issue for the fourth consecutive day, both Houses of Parliament were on Friday adjourned without transacting any business till August 16 for a three-week recess.
Shouting slogans, National Democratic Alliance members stormed the well in both Houses asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to make a statement on the whereabouts of Coal Minister Sibu Soren, against whom an arrest warrant has been issued in a 30-year-old murder case.
In the Lok Sabha, Leader of the House and Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee made a statement condemning the behaviour of a section of the opposition which obstructed the speaker from making an observation.
