Soon after obituary reference, Speaker Meira Kumar took up the first listed question and asked Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to reply.
As the minister rose to speak, four TDP members walked into the Well holding placards demanding justice for Andhra Pradesh.
Several Congress members from Andhra Pradesh walked up to the Well holding placards which read "We want united Andhra Pradesh". They also raised slogans demanding justice.
The protesters were mainly those whose suspension has been sought for the rest of the session by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath.
