New Delhi:  AIADMK members in the Lok Sabha Monday shouted slogans to protest the presence of Sri Lankan delegates, led by Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa, who were in the house as special foreign guests.

AIADMK members, led by S. Semmalai and Munisamy Thambidurai, shouted "shame, shame" as soon as Speaker Meira Kumar began reading out her welcome message to Rajapaksa and his other colleagues, including Sri Lankan ministers, sitting in the special box to the left of her.

Almost all nine members of Tamil Nadu's ruling party were heard shouting slogans against the Sri Lankan government as MPs from other parties thumped their desks to welcome the nine-member visiting delegation.

P. Lingam, the Communist Party of India (CPI) MP from Tenkasi in Tamil Nadu, also attempted to join the protests over alleged human rights abuses against Sri Lankan Tamils in the island nation. He was seen walking down the aisle towards the speaker's podium but was stopped by his party leader Gurudas Dasgupta, who asked him to go back to his seat.

A visibly irate Meira Kumar rebuked the Tamil MPs and asked them to show some courtesy to the honoured guests.

The Sri Lankan delegation is on a five-day official visit to India on an invitation by the speaker. (NDTV)

    Uncivilized goons with immature emotions. The saying playing to the gallery is very apt.

    John Monday, 01 August 2011 09:21 AM

    This demostrates why a separate state can never be given . The closest Indian state has too many uncivilised people at high levels.

    suresh Monday, 01 August 2011 09:37 AM

    There are lots of ways to express their own concerns. However, we have seen some problems related to their civilization.

    younus Monday, 01 August 2011 09:37 AM

    hahaha

    Liyanage Monday, 01 August 2011 10:56 AM

    No,no. This is their uncivilized behaviour.

    KABAB Monday, 01 August 2011 11:24 AM

    Automatic Tuesday, 02 August 2011 01:41 AM

    That age old saying rings true everytime!

    Automatic Tuesday, 02 August 2011 01:41 AM

    Yes, Yes we are the civilized ones!

    Automatic Tuesday, 02 August 2011 01:42 AM

    Because we need a friend in High places.

    MagodisThuma Monday, 01 August 2011 01:37 PM

    Rukiya Monday, 01 August 2011 01:47 PM

    Haven't you guys seen the behavior of our parliament members in the videos/television broadcasts. This is far better than the things happened in our Parliament!
