NEW DELHI — Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned till Tuesday, amid vociferous protests by both treasury benches and opposition members over the issue of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s speech in London.
As soon as Lok Sabha convened at 2 p.m., Rajendra Agrawal, who was in the Chair, asked for papers to be laid in the House.
However, Congress members came into the well of House, shouting slogans “We want JPC” while treasury benches were also seen shouting slogans “Rahul Gandhi Maafi Maango” (Rahul Gandhi apologise).
Agrawal urged protesting members to return to their seats, saying that they should allow some business to be transacted.
“All issues would be discussed,” he said.
