Taking strong exception to continuing protests and disruptions in Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan today threatened to adjourn the Lower House sine die.
As soon as the Lok Sabha met, protests began once again with opposition members raising slogans and holding placards.
Some of the MPs trooped near the Speaker's podium.
Mahajan tried to conduct the Question Hour, but her efforts went in vain.
An angry Mahajan then said she may have to draw curtains on the budget session if protests continued to stall the proceedings of the House.
"You are wasting everyone's time. All MPs are saying they want the House to run... Or I will have to adjourn the House sine die," she said.
