NEW DELHI: Trinamool Congress and BJP today targeted each other in Parliament, leading to clashes and walkouts.

Trinamool Congress displayed in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha the copies of some red diary, allegedly recovered from Sahara group chief Subrata Roy, and claimed that it contained name of a BJP leader.

In the Lok Sabha, Trinamool Congress members rushed to the Well shouting slogans. They demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should explain what action CBI has taken after the name allegedly figured in the diary.

They later staged a walkout of the proceedings.

Sudip Bandyopadhyay (TMC) had given a notice for suspension of Question Hour to discuss the issue which was rejected by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

Later, BJP member Kirit Somaiya hit back, alleging that the West Bengal government of Trinamool Congress was creating "hurdles" in the CBI investigation into the Saradha chit fund scam, in which names of "one dozen" Trinamool leaders have cropped up.

This led to protests by Trinamool members but Somaiya went on saying that 3.5 lakh small investors had been cheated in the chit fund scheme.

"The state government is not cooperating with the CBI probe," he alleged.

Amid the noisy scenes, the Speaker adjourned the House for lunch, ahead of schedule.

In the Rajya Sabha, Derek O'Brien (TMC) sought to raise the issue during Zero Hour and Question Hour but was disallowed.

He had earlier given a notice for suspension of Question Hour but was not allowed.

As O'Brien rose to raise the issue during Question Hour, BJP members shouted him down by raising the issue of Saradha chit fund scam.

Trinamool members later staged a walkout as they were disallowed from raising the issue.
