New Delhi: Parliament was today adjourned till noon after uproar over various issues including JPC report on 2G, Telangana, price rise and death of children in relief camps for riot victims in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.
BJP members were on the feet in Lok Sabha on the issue of JPC report which gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the 2G spectrum scam.
