The Lok Sabha stalemate continued for the seventh consecutive day on Tuesday amid continuing protests, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the House for the day.

Members from the Congress, the Trinamool Congress and some other opposition parties protested against the banking fraud committed by Nirav Modi and his associates, while the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress demonstrated for the special economic status for Andhra Pradesh.

The AIADMK meanwhile, has demanded a board for the management of the Cauvery river water.

Soon after the House met, members from several parties trooped near the Speaker's podium, raising slogans and displaying placards.

In the din, the Speaker adjourned the House till 12 p.m., and then later for the day.

The Lower House has not transacted any major business, except introduction of two bills on Monday and routine laying of papers since the post-break part of the Budget Session that started on March 5.

Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day on Tuesday, minutes after it reassembled at 2 p.m, without transacting any business amid ruckus by opposition TDP and AIADMK members over various issues.

As soon as the House met in the afternoon, some members came near the Chair's podium holding placards. Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien repeatedly asked the agitating members to go back to their seats, but they did not relent.

Kurien then adjourned the House for the day.

The opposition has been demanding a discussion under adjournment motion on the Rs 12,600-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam and other frauds in various public sector banks.

Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu has rejected the opposition's demand for a discussion under rules which allow suspension of all listed business or entail voting (Rules 267 and 168).

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs have been demanding special financial assistance from the Centre for Andhra Pradesh, while the AIADMK MPs were protesting over distribution of Cauvery water between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

When the House met for in the morning, Chairman Naidu adjourned it till 2 p.m, after his appeal to the members to not display placards etc., or make noise fell on deaf ears.
