Rajya Sabha adjourned after AIADMK create stir over Chidambaram's son


New Delhi: AIADMK members on Tuesday created a ruckus in the Rajya Sabha demanding action against former finance minister P. Chidambaram's son Karthi Chidambaram.

AIADMK members trooped near the chairman's podium soon after the house met at 11 a.m., raising slogans and demanding action.

The members were shouting slogans in Tamil and English saying -- "Take action against Chidambaram".

Amid the ruckus Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien adjourned the house for 10 minutes.

When the house reassembled, Kurien announced that a notice by AIADMK has been rejected as it was not in order.

While the AIADMK members kept raising slogans, a few zero hour mentions were read out by members.

Kurien also told the protesting members that it was not in his hands to take action.

"This is an issue the chair has nothing to do with. If you want action against a private individual you can approach the government. Why do you trouble me?" Kurien said.

However, as the din continued, the house was adjourned till 12 noon.
