Both Houses of Parliament were once again disrupted on Friday over the issue of Sri Lankan Tamils. The question hour was lost to protests.

DMK members also raised the issue of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raids at the residence of party leader MK Stalin.

In the Lok Sabha, as soon as the House met for the day, members from DMK and AIADMK were on their feet protesting against the resolution against Sri Lanka in United Nation Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

The DMK and AIADMK have said the resolution was not strong enough.

Amid protests, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House till noon.

In the Rajya Sabha, DMK members demanded the government clarify on the raids at Stalin’s house in Chennai.

"Government should react," said DMK’s Tiruchi Shiva.

AIADMK members were, meanwhile, displaying placards with a picture of the dead son of slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran.
