Opposition continues to disrupt Parliament for 7th consecutive day

Both the Houses of Parliament have been adjourned, the Lok Sabha for the day and the Rajya Sabha up to 2 PM on Tuesday following continued protests by opposition parties.

When the Lok Sabha re-assembled at Noon after its first adjournment, Congress-led opposition again trooped into the well, raising slogans. This forced Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the House for the day.

Earlier, the House was adjourned within minutes after it met for the day. Members from Telugu Desam Party, an ally of NDA and Y S R Congress party also trooped into the well demanding special status to Andhra Pradesh.

In the Rajya Sabha, despite repeated appeals by Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to allow the smooth functioning of the House, opposition members trooped into the well displaying placards.

Mr Naidu said the disturbances in the House shows Parliament in a poor light. Stating that the Chair is willing to allow discussion effectively as per rules and traditions, Mr Naidu again appealed to them to put an end to the stalling of proceedings.

Soon after this, AIADMK members surged into the well of the House forcing its adjournment till 2 PM.

It was the seventh day in a row when both the Houses of Parliament were subjected to repeated adjournments.
