Parliament Highlights: Both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha proceedings were disrupted for the third day on Tuesday as opposition members demanded an immediate discussion on the issue of Delhi violence. During the proceedings in the Lok Sabha, the opposition trooped into shouting slogans and some of them displayed placards, demanding resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla was not present and the proceedings, which went on for little over five minutes, were chaired by BJP member Meenakshi Lekhi.

Earlier in the day, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and his deputy Anand Sharma today gave suspension of business notice under rule 267 over the Delhi riots.

The government on Tuesday said it was ready for a discussion on the communal violence in Delhi in both Houses on March 11, the day after Holi. However, Azad on Tuesday had made it clear that the Opposition will not back down from its demand for a discussion. Talks between the two sides, sources said, are continuing to end the deadlock.
