RS adjourned till 2 pm due to uproar over various issues

Both Question Hour and Zero Hour were washed out as scores of members from the TDP, Congress, AIADMK, TRS and Trinamool Congress trooped into the Well, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings first for an hour. They were also supported by their rival YSR Congress party.

TDP MPs were also seen staging a protest in front of Gandhi statue in the Parliament premises at around 10:30 am today.

However, when the House reassembled at noon, the protests continued and no legislative business could be carried out. However, as the pandemonium continued, Kurien adjourned the proceedings of the House for the day after barely a couple of minutes.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned in the morning amid protests by opposition parties and NDA ally TDP on various issues including the demand for special status for Andhra Pradesh, the Cauvery row, sealing in Delhi and bank fraud. The Congress has been demanding discussion over bank fraud cases, including the Rs 12,600 crore Punjab National Bank scam, while the AIADMK has been pressing for the setting up of the Cauvery Water Management Board.

"Hence we are strongly asking him (to honour the promises made in the Reorganisation Act as well as those made in Rajya Sabha by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh),"Mr Naidu said".

"This is too much".

"Referring to BJP leaders' statements that funds for various development works and schemes were coming from the centre, the Chief Minister said that those funds came from people's money".

Earlier, Naidu expressed his anguish over the absence of some Ministers and laying down of papers by others without taking the Chair's consent. "So I am requesting.Andhra should be immediately granted special category status", the chief minister said.

The first day of the second week of the second half of the Budget Session of Parliament was thus a total washout.

The Lok Sabha has been witnessing similar scenes since March 5, with opposition parties besides the TDP, which remains a member of the ruling NDA though it has pulled out of the Central government, raising a host of issues such as special status for Andhra Pradesh, enhanced reservation in Telangana and constitution of the Cauvery river board to settle Tamil Nadu's water dispute with neighbours.
