Both Houses of Parliament were on Tuesday adjourned till noon over the issue of allocation of coal blocks.

The main opposition BJP has been pressing for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s resignation over the issue.

When the Lok Sabha reconvenes, Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj will make a brief observation in the House, said sources.

The House will then take up financial business, including the Railway Appropriation Bill, the demands for grants of the various ministries and the Finance Bill 2013, as agreed upon by the BJP on Monday at an all-party meeting, called by Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to break the ongoing logjam.
