The Lok Sabha was Friday adjourned till noon over protests by some members demanding that Andhra Pradesh remain united.

As soon as the house assembled for the day, members from Andhra Pradesh belonging to the Telugu Desam Party as well as the Congress started raising slogans demanding that  Andhra Pradesh remain united.

This led to Speaker Meira Kumar adjourning the house till noon.


The protesting members were among the 12 who were suspended for five sittings by the speaker Aug 23 for disrupting the house on the same issue.
