New Delhi: Opposition members in Lok Sabha stormed the Well wearing black clothes and two Congress MPs hurled papers towards the Chair, leading to adjournment of proceedings till 4 pm on Monday as ruckus persisted over Rahul Gandhi's disqualification and the Adani issue.
As soon as the House met for the day, Congress members wearing black scarves trooped into the Well shouting slogans.
Two Congress members, T N Pratapan and Hibi Eden, who were in the Well holding placards, hurled order papers towards the Chair along with their scarves.
"Dear ED daro mat, Adani per raid karo (ED don't be scared, raid Adani)," read one of the placards.
Congress leader Sonia Gandhi was seen wearing a black scarf while other members of her party wore black shirts. National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah was wearing a black kurta.
Amid the ruckus by Opposition members, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla adjourned proceedings of the House in less than a minute after it assembled for the Question Hour. "I want to run the House with dignity," Speaker Birla said, adding that "proceedings are adjourned till 4 pm."
Lok Sabha has been witnessing frequent disruptions since the second part of the Budget Session began on March 13 with Opposition members demanding a joint parliamentary committee probe into the Adani issue.
