The lower house of the parliament, Lok Sabha was also adjourned for the day after MPs created ruckus over Telangana Bill.
This has become a routine in the two houses of the parliament ever since the second phase of winter session began. The ongoing session is the last session of 15th Lok Sabha. Initially, there were rumours that a number of Bills would be passed in the session. But it now seems unlikely as the Houses' proceedings get delayed everyday, thanks to Telangana issue.
Andhra Pradesh is divided on regional lines on the Telangana issue. While politicians from Telangana region, comprising of 10 districts, demand the approval of the T-Bill, those from Seemandhra region, including chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, demands the plan be dropped.
While Bharatiya Janata party has declared its support for the Bill in the parliament, Trinamool Congress will oppose it. Three Lok Sabha members, from Andhra Pradesh, have also given notices of no-confidence motion against the Manmohan Singh government.
The Bill was rejected in the AP assembly. However, the cabinet, last week, approved it and the Bill is expected to be presented in the parliament this week.
