Proceedings on the second day of the Lok Sabha ended with adjournment for the day today after opposition parties created a ruckus on the floor of the House over several issues.

As soon as House met for the day, opposition members raised slogans and started protesting over farmers' suicide and mob lynching in the name of 'gau raksha'. This forced Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings till 11 am.

When the House met again at 11 and took up the Question Hour, opposition members again created an uproar, targeting the government. Following noisy protests the Speaker adjourned the House for the day. Today was the second day of the Monsoon Session which will have a total of 19 sittings.

Members of the Congress, Trinamool Congress, RJD and the Left rushed into the Well raising slogans and holding placards. While one of the placards read: "Gau mata toh bahana hai, karz maafi se dhyan hatana hai (Cow protection is a tool to divert attention from farm loan waiver)", another read "who allowed Vijay Mallya to leave the country." 

As a vociferous opposition continued to raise slogans, BJP members from Karnataka were seen holding placards and standing at their benches asking the state government to protect honest officers. They were referring to the recent transfer of DIG (Prisons) D Roopa, who had reportedly exposed that AIADMK leader Sasikala Natrajan was provided special facilities and services inside prison.
