Parliament session: Both the Houses adjourned for the day


New Delhi, March 27: The proceedings in Both the Houses of Parliament were adjourned on Tuesday following protests by AIADMK members.

Pandemonium was witnessed in Rajya Sabha when AIADMK members stalled the proceeding forcing Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn for 15 minutes in the beginning and later for the day.

Similar situation was prevalent in  Lok Sabha, where AIADMK members trooped into the well raising slogans in support of their demand in connection with Cauvery river waters. Amid noisy scenes, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till noon within minutes after it met and later for the day.

As the House met for the day, M. Venkaiah Naidu allowed the retiring members to speak. However, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and AIADMK members came close to the podium and started protesting.

Naidu first adjourned the House for 15 minutes and asked the floor leaders to come to his chamber.

But as the House reconvened, the protesting members were on their feet again. Even threats of disciplinary action by the Chair and requests to maintain the House traditions failed to deter the MPs.

Naidu then adjourned the House for the day, saying he would consider taking “action” if things did not improve by Wednesday.
