New Delhi: Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day as determined opposition members created uproar demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the raging IPL controversy.

When the House reassembled at 2.30 PM after the first adjournment at noon, it witnessed similar scenes of slogan shouting and strong demands for setting up of a JPC.

Some BJP members rushed to the well and shouted slogans against the government to press for their demand.

The Congress members said that discussing BPL was more important than discussing IPL as it concerned the people and countered the demand for JPC.

"We have demanded for a JPC probe. We want to know what is happening in IPL," S S Ahluwalia (BJP) said.

Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan said no notice has been given and discussion on the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation was important.

Ahluwalia retorted saying, "The nation has taken notice of what has happened in IPL. A loot is taking place in IPL."

B K Hariprasad and Rashid Alvi (Congress) were on their feet to demand that discussion on BPL was more important.
