Lok Sabha adjourned for the day

Lok Sabha adjourned for the day

However, the Opposition persisted with its demand.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day minutes after the lower house reassembled at noon.

Several opposition parities including, the Congress and the TMC raised the similar issue in Lok Sabha as well.

All the protesting members, including from the Telugu Desam Party, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kaghazam, YSR Congress and Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), trooped into the Well, raising anti-government slogans and displaying placards.

MPs disrupted Parliament proceedings for the seventh consecutive session on Tuesday, protesting and shouting slogans over a number of concerns.

Two TDP ministers had resigned last week from the National Democratic Alliance-led Centre as their demand for Special Category status to Andhra Pradesh was not met.


Amid the bedlam, Mahajan adjourned the House for almost one hour till 12 noon.

After the proceedings were adjourned, TDP and TRS members were seen talking to Highways minister Nitin Gadkari and Parliamentary minister Ananth Kumar.

The government has so far failed to bring in any legislation in parliament in the budget session, which resumed on Mar 5, due to the repeated disruptions by the opposition parties.

He also introduced the Chit Funds (Amendment) Bill, 2018.

Not much business has been carried out since the second leg of the Budget Session of Parliament began, with the noisy protests stalling proceedings every day, barring for one hour on 8 March when members participated in a discussion to mark the International Women's Day in the Upper House.
