New Delhi: The uproar over Telangana issue refused to die down in Parliament with the Lok Sabha remaining paralysed on the matter as also on the solar panel scam in Kerala as the Monsoon session entered its second week.

The issue of Robert Vadra`s alleged land deals was also raised briefly by BJP members from their seats citing fresh allegations levelled by IAS officer Ashok Khemka against the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

In the continued protest on Telangana, a TDP member attempted to play Lord Krishna in the Well with some other members showing placards. The act of the member was "deprecated" by Deputy Speaker Karia Munda.

"The conduct of several members in the House on Monday in showing banners and placards in the Well..., shouting slogans and one member dressed up dramatically and attempting to play the flute in the Well of the House was highly derogatory to the dignity of the House," he said.

It was trouble from the word go when the House assembled for the day as Left party members trooped into the Well demanding resignation of Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the wake of solar panel scam.

TDP members were also in the Well demanding justice to Seemandhra region following the decision on Telangana.Congress members from Seemandhra region were seen protesting from their seats holding placards saying `We want justice`.

Amid uproar for a few minutes, the House was adjourned till noon.

It was a similar story when the House reassembled, with
heated exchanges between Left and Congress members from Kerala, including Union Minister K Suresh, over solar scam.

SK Bwiswmuthiary, a member from Kokrajhar, was seen raising a placard demanding separate state of Bodoland.

In the din, Speaker Meira Kumar ordered tabling of papers listed for the day. As there was no let up in the uproar, she adjourned the House till 2 pm.

The solar panel issue was raised in the House on a day when the Left made a massive show of strength in Thiruvananthapuram, with LDF volunteers laying siege to the state secretariat as part of their campaign to demand Chandy`s resignation.

After three adjournments, the House was adjourned for the day after Chidambaram made a statement on economy amid din.
