LS adjourned over farmer, lynching issues
The Lok Sabha was adjourned without transacting any business on Tuesday due to the Opposition parties’ noisy protests over woes of farmers and lynching of people in the name of protection of cows.

MPs of the ruling BJP from Karnataka, too, displayed placards drawing attention to the need to protect honest officers in the state.

They were referring to the transfer of IPS officer Roopa D Moudgil by the state government after she exposed that imprisoned AIADMK leader V Sasikala was being provided special facilities and services in a jail in Bengaluru.

Shobha Karandlaje and other BJP MPs from Karnataka also staged a protest in the premises of Parliament against Roopa’s transfer by the Congress government in the state.

The Lok Sabha witnessed an uproar as several MPs of the Opposition parties like the Congress, Trinamool Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal and the CPM trooped into the Well of the House.

They raised slogans slamming the BJP-led government for failing to help the farmers and to stop the lynching of people by cow vigilantes.

The noisy protests started shortly after the House assembled for the day and the Speaker moved to start the proceedings of the Question Hour.
