Smoke on the Metro: The Aftermath - I

January 2:
CPI-M and BJP disrupted House proceedings today for an hour before the session had to be adjourned. The issue at hand was the scathing exposee by Bland Spice yesterday on his blog on the shocking level of flatulent matter existing in the Metro.

Prakash Karat, walking out, told this reporter that the issue was clearly never a prt of the COmmon Minimum Program and is defintely against the poor man. BJP cadres gheraoed the Parliament in the noon and demanded the resignation of the PM.

Mr. Advani, leader of the opposition, alleged that the issue points towards rampant corruption happening in the Metro Development Authority; but failed to elaborate.

He demanded a CBI inquiry and said that there is clearly a foreign hand.

A nation-wide bandh has been announced by the CPI-M on January 3.

Expect an update on the strike tomorrow.
