NEW DELHI: Both Houses of Parliament were Adjourned till 2:30 p.m. following the ruckus by Congress parliamentarians over the National Herald case.

Minutes after the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha assembled for the day's proceedings, the Congress MPs in both the houses created a ruckus over court summons to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.

The Delhi High Court had on Monday dismissed the plea of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to quash a trial court's summons to them in the National Herald case. 

The Congress termed it "petty vendetta politics of the BJP".

The date for their appearance has been set for December 19.
