New Delhi:  There is war over the Commonwealth Games and the report of the government's auditor on it. In Parliament, where heated words were exchanged between the Opposition and the Treasury benches in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) shouting slogans against Congress president Sonia Gandhi alleging that she had a role in appointing Suresh Kalmadi as chief of the Commonwealth Games organising committee.

And outside Parliament, at Jantar Mantar, where the BJP's youth workers clashed with the police. The BJP workers jumped a barricade to proceed towards Parliament House. The police struggled to bring the crowd under control using a lathicharge, water cannons and tear gas shells. The protestors threw what they could find back at the police.

Both Houses of Parliament saw angry and noisy protests from the Congress when the BJP named Mrs. Gandhi. The furore - during a debate on Sports Minister Ajay Maken's statement that the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government was responsible for the appointment of Mr Kalmadi - forced repeated adjournment of the Upper House for a while. A BJP MP made a derogatory remark and the Congress was up in arms demanding an apology. The MP had to apologise.
