New Delhi:  Turmoil in Parliament over Telangana and other issues took a toll on the proceedings for the fifth consecutive day today, resulting in transaction of no substantial business in both Houses.


While Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day at noon after one adjournment soon after it met for the day, Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day a little after 2 PM when it met after three adjournments in the pre-lunch sitting.

The ruckus in both Houses, however, did not deter the Chair to allow introduction of four bills - three in Rajya Sabha and one in Lok Sabha - as members of several parties trooped into the Well raising slogans on their demands.

As soon as Lok Sabha met for the day, it was adjourned till noon within minutes, after members condoled the death of people in different accidents in Odisha and West Bengal.

When it reassembled at noon, over 40 members from different parties, walked into the Well raising various issues, including Telangana and plight of Tamil fishermen.

Amid continuing pandemonium, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House till tomorrow after laying of papers and introduction of a bill seeking to acquire certain areas in Mumbai for the Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial.
