New Delhi: The Lok Sabha was adjourned for the third time Tuesday as the Left parties, Samajwadi Party and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MPs created a ruckus over price rise.

Soon after the House re-assembled at 2.00 pm, the Left, SP and RJD MPs gathered near the Speaker`s podium raising slogans against the government.

Deputy Speaker Karia Munda`s pleas to the protesting MPs to maintain order in the House fell on deaf ears. As the protest continued, the chair adjourned the house till 6.00 pm.

The budget proposals are expected to be presented in the House for approval at that time.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the Left parties and some others are set to move cut motions in the Lok Sabha on the budget proposals to hike prices of fuels and fertilisers. However, the treasury is confident of passing the test of strength.
