New Delhi: The row over religious conversion disrupted last day of Winter Session of Parliament on Tuesday, with both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha being adjourned sine die.
After it convened for the day, Lok Sabha was first adjourned till noon following Opposition uproar over conversion and demand for Prime Minister's reply.
However, the uproar continued even after 12 noon and the House was then adjourned sine die to meet next year for the Budget Session.
Similar scenes were witnessed in the Upper House as well.
Rajya Sabha was first adjourned till noon following uproar by SP and JD(U) MPs over alleged atrocities on their workers yesterday.
However, when the House met again at 12 noon Opposition MPs created ruckus demanding PM's statement on communal incidents. The Chair then adjourned the Rajya Sabha till 1:00 pm.
Again when the House reconvened, the uproar continued and the Rajya Sabha was also then adjourned sine die.
With no business transacted in both the Houses, the fate of Insurance and Coal Bills continues to be in limbo.
The Insurance Bill, which provides for raising FDI cap from 26 percent to 49 percent, could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha due to disruptions even though it was listed on four days last week.
