New Delhi: The demand for a separate Telangana state disrupted the Lok Sabha for the fifth consecutive day Friday, leading to another adjournment as some MPs alleged that the central government was insensitive towards their demand.

As soon as the lower house convened at 11 a.m., MPs from the Congress, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) shouted slogans of "Jai Telangana", urging Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the house.

The MPs alleged that the central government was insensitive towards their demand which had driven people to end their lives.

As the din continued, the speaker adjourned the house till 12 noon.

The dragging demand for a separate state to be carved out of Andhra Pradesh has seen at least two people have committed suicide in the last few days.
