New Delhi: Opposition members in the Lok Sabha today raised slogans against Civil Aviation Minister Jayant Sinha for garlanding men convicted of lynching a meat trader in Jharkhand.

As soon as the minister rose to respond to a question on upgradation of airports during the Question Hour, opposition members started raising slogans.

They soon rushed to the Well demanding an apology from the minister. They raised slogans such as "stop garlanding convicts" as Sinha responded to the question.
