Lok Sabha adjourned till noon
New Delhi: Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned on Friday till 12 noon following protests by the opposition on price rise and other issues.
As soon as the House assembled at 11 am, opposition members belonging to the Congress and Left parties came to the well and staged protests.
They were shouting slogans and carrying placards against the Modi government.
Speaker Om Birla appealed to them to go back to their respective seats and take part in the proceedings of the House which was taking up questions related to different ministries and departments.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi also appealed to the opposition members to take part in the proceedings, saying the government is ready to discuss the issue of price rise and it will be done once Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recovers from her illness.
However, opposition members refused to heed to the appeal and continued their protests.
As the protests and sloganeering continued, the speaker adjourned the house till noon. (PTI)
