Both houses of parliament were adjourned sine die Wednesday, two days ahead of the scheduled close on Dec 20. The Lok Sabha was adjourned sine die shortly after the Lokpal bill was passed. The Rajya Sabha, meanwhile, took up a brief discussion on the arrest of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade and took up clarifications on a statement made by Commerce Minister Anand Sharma on the recently concluded World Trade Organisation meeting. However, as the government tried to introduce a constitutional amendment bill on the India-Bangladesh land swap, members protested.
