Telangana issue stalls Parliament, both Houses adjourned till tomorrow
Parliament was disrupted again on Wednesday over a variety of issues, including Telangana, leading to an adjournment of both Houses for the day.
As soon as Lok Sabha met, pro and anti-Telangana members rushed to the Well holding placards in support of their demands.
DMK members demanded a probe and a resolution by the UN Human Rights Commission against the Sri Lankan government for violating the rights of Tamils in the island country.
Speaker Meira Kumar repeatedly appealed to the members to maintain calm to allow for the smooth conduct of the House. As noisy scenes continued, she adjourned the House till noon and later till tomorrow.
Similar scenes were witnessed in Rajya Sabha.
As many as 39 bills, including the Telangana bill and six anti-corruption legislations, will be taken up during the session.
The session, convened mainly for the passage of the Vote-on-Account and interim Railway Budget, will have 12 sittings between the 5th and the 21st of this month.
Crucial legislations like Communal Violence Bill, Disability Bill, Women's Reservation Bill and other bills passed by one of the two Houses are also listed for passage during the session.
