Lok Sabha adjourned till Monday over rupee, Telangana

New Delhi, Aug 30, 2013 (IANS):

The Lok Sabha was repeatedly disrupted Friday and finally adjourned till Monday over the sliding rupee and continuing protests against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

As soon as the house assembled, members from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Congress  raised slogans demanding that Andhra Pradesh remain united.

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.

This forced Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the house till noon. When the house re-assembled, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh gave a statement on the state of the economy.


During his speech, the prime minister made some references to the Bharatiya Janata Party which ruffled feathers among the main opposition benches. BJP MPs and its allies then walked out, led by opposition leader Sushma Swaraj.

Members of the Trinamool Congress showed placards and raised slogans against the prime minister over the fall of the rupee. The house was then adjourned till 12.45 p.m. and again till 2 p.m. following similar disruptions.

When the house reconvened at 2 p.m. it was once again adjourned till 3 p.m. following noisy scenes. The scene was the same at 3 p.m. when leader of opposition Sushma Swaraj stood up to speak on the recent floods in Uttarakhand.

She even requested the chair to bring the house to order. But the chair then adjourned the house till Monday.
