State in PMO V Narayanasamy was heard saying "what more they (the Opposition) want, when he (Shukla) has said that he will bring it to the notice of the minister concerned".
The issue, much to the discomfiture of the government, saw the Opposition uniting again against FDI, even as motions brought by it got defeated in both Houses last week with government securing numbers with the help of BSP and SP.
While BSP members today kept seated, those from SP were on their feet joining the issue with BJP and Left.
Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M) urged the Chair to ask the government to consider the matter very important and come up with an answer.
D Raja (CPI) said a letter has already been written to the Prime Minister in this regard.
Ravishankar Prasad (BJP) also reminded that Leader of the Opposition Arun Jaitley had talked in detail about it but "then the government said that there was no such thing".
Shivanand Tiwari (JD-U) said Prime Minister should reply.
The House was first adjourned for ten minutes. But similar scenes were witnessed when it reassembled. Adding to the pandemonium, SP members trooped into the Well on promotion in reservation issue forcing the Chair to adjourn the House till 2 pm.
