Parliament adjourned till noon after uproar over price rise

New Delhi, Nov 24: Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned till noon today (Nov 23) following uproar by the opposition on issues like price rise, demand for Telangana and special status to flood-ravaged Odisha.

For the third consecutive day the Question Hour could not be taken up in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha during the current Winter session.

Soon after the Lok Sabha met for the day, Samajwadi Party and RJD members raised slogans against price rise and some of them walked to the Well.

BSP members too were agitated over the issue of inflation, while those from the Left parties protested from their seats.

TRS members K Chandrasekhar Rao and Vijayashanti too entered the Well and raised their demand for Telangana statehood.

BJD members shouted slogans demanding special status to flood-affected Odisha. They held placards saying "No step- motherly attitude by UPA will be tolerated", "UPA government down down" and "We demand special category status to Odisha."

Members of the BJP, whose senior leader L K Advani had given an adjournment notice on black money, were on their feet demanding that the motion be accepted.

As the din continued, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House till 12 noon.

Earlier, when the House met for the day, she welcomed a high-level delegation from Bhutan led by its Parliament Speaker Dasho Ugen Dorje.

The House also condoled the death of those killed in Odisha floods after the Speaker expressed concern over the loss of lives and livestock in the state.
