Both houses of Parliament adjourned till 12 pm


The Lok Sabha has been adjourned till 12 noon following Congress’ uproar over the suspension of its leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury from the House yesterday. When the House met for the day, Congress members tried to raise the issue which was disallowed by Speaker Om Birla. The Congress members created a noisy scene. 

Later, the Speaker adjourned the House till 12 noon. Mr.  Chowdhury was suspended from the Lok Sabha yesterday for his unruly conduct and the matter was referred to the  Privileges Committee. He will remain suspended till the committee takes a decision. 

The Rajya Sabha has also been adjourned till 12 noon over the law and order situation in Rajasthan. When the House met this morning, Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge raised the issue of suspension of Mr. Chowdhury saying that he is a member of several Parliamentary Committees. 

He said the suspension will deprive him of discharging his duties as a member of the Committees. Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs V. Muraleedharan objected to it saying the Congress leader is a member of Lok Sabha and the matter of other house should not be raised here. 

The House started giving farewell to nine retiring members. The Leader of the Opposition and the Leader of the House highlighted their contribution.

Meanwhile, BJP MP Kirori Lal Meena raised the issue of the law and order situation in Rajasthan to which opposition members objected and started sloganeering. This led to the adjournment of the house till 12 Noon.
