Uproar in LS as Sena MP says saffron flag to be hoisted atop Red Fort

New Delhi: Lok Sabha witnessed ruckus today after a Shiv Sena member remarked that saffron flag would be hoisted atop the Red Fort leading to a brief adjournment.

Opposition members protested when Prataprao Ganpatrao Jadhav (SS) said they would unfurl saffron flag on the Red Fort in Delhi.

Jadhav was speaking on the Motion of Thanks on the President's address to Parliament.

Opposing the remark, members from Congress, Trinamool Congress and Left parties urged the Speaker to remove it from the records.

Arjun Charan Sethi, who was in the Chair, assured the agitating members that he would examine the record and remove if there was anything objectionable.

However, the assurance failed to pacify the agitating members leading to adjournment of the House for a brief time.
