LS adjourned for the day after uproar over Women's Bill

The House saw three adjournments on the same issue before the Chair called it a day as members opposed to the bill remained unrelenting.RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and JD(U) President Sharad Yadav led their slogan-shouting members into the well each time the House was called to order.

At one time, SP member Shailendra Kumar tore some legislative documents and threw pieces of paper into the well, even as the Chair took up the listed business. Lone member of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen Asaduddin Owaisi too joined the protest, raising slogans against the bill and rushed to the well.

As pandemonium continued, the Chair adjourned the House for the day. Similar scenes were witnessed throughout the day, as the opponents of the bill in its present form demanded a quota within the quota for OBCs, SCs, STs and minorities.
