Issues of Gujarat fake encounter and raising of anti-India slogans at a rally in Kashmir rocked the Rajya Sabha today, leading to its adjournment for the day.

New Delhi, May 3 : Issues of Gujarat fake encounter and raising of anti-India slogans at a rally in Kashmir rocked the Rajya Sabha today, leading to its adjournment for the day.

Members created uproar by shouting slogans and did not let Leader of the Opposition Jaswant Singh to speak when the House reassembled at 2 pm, despite assurances from Deputy Chairman K Rahman Khan, who was in the Chair, that everybody would be given an opportunity to speak on the issue.

While the BJP demanded a discussion on the spurt in ''anti-national'' activities in Jammu and Kashmir, the CPI (M) and Samajwadi Party sought a debate on the Gujarat fake encounter case.

Raising the issue of banned Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) hoisting Pakistani flag at a meeting of Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani in Srinagar recently, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj said that the party gave a notice to the Chair on April 26 for a discussion on the issue.

She demanded that Jaswant Singh be allowed to make a statement on it.

This was strongly opposed by CPM leader Brinda Karat and Samajwadi Party member Shahid Siddiqui.

Karat and Siddiqui, instead, sought a discussion on the killings of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and his wife Kausar Bi in 2005 Gujarat fake encounter by police.
