Congress has sought resignations of both Chouhan and Raje. It has also demanded that Swaraj quit for helping former IPL boss Lalit Modi.

The monsoon session of Parliament, which begins Tuesday, is set to be a stormy one as Congress and several other opposition parties appeared to be closing ranks to corner the government on a range of issues, including the Vyapam scam and Lalit Modi controversy.

Apart from pressing for the removal of Union ministers Swaraj and Smriti Irani, opposition parties have indicated that they would raise the issue of scams and controversies allegedly involving BJP chief ministers — Chouhan, Raje and Raman Singh of Chhattisgarh and demand their resignations.

      After losing the election, Congress has become anti-national. They won't allow any discussion or p any bill. The only way out is to expel unruly MP's out from the house. If necessary, marshals should be used to physically throw the MP's out from the house. Can Sumitra Mahajan be a bit strong and harsh?
