During the session, the MPs raised slogans and waved placards demanding a separate state on Tuesday, Apr 24. This disruption forced Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the session.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Home Minister P Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Congress leader Ranee Narah requested the members to go back to their seats and maintain peace in the session.

Meanwhile, Mulayam Singh Yadav of Samajwadi Party, Sharad Yadav of Janata Dal (U) and and Gurudas Dasgupta of CPI were also present in the House.
