Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the house till 2 pm after it witnessed ruckus on the very first day of the Monsoon session over a remark by opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani who said that the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) II is illegitimate.
Congress lawmakers immediately started shouting slogans and demanded Advani to retract his words.
Advani soon rose to say that he was referring to the 2008 confidence vote incident during UPA I and not the 2009 elections. He also withdrew his words, supposedly a slip of tongue.
He said he was not referring to UPA II or the 2009 elections as illegitimate.
With the situation going out of hand, Speaker Meira Kumar intervened and urged Advani to take back his word.
"You were speaking right but one word hurt everyone. You can take back that," she advised to Advani.
Kumar said Advani´s remark would be expunged. She again and again also urged Advani to withdraw his words.
