Telangana issue: Lok Sabha adjourns sine die
New Delhi: The Lok Sabha was rocked for the
fourth consecutive day today by the Telangana issue, with
members in favour of the separate state and those opposing it
disrupting the proceedings.
The House could function barely for about 55 minutes
during which legislative business was rushed through with five
important bills being passed and two others introduced amid
The bills passed included one on raising Salaries and
Allowances of Ministers and another providing for creation of
commercial divisions of High Courts.
The entire Opposition, except TDP, was agitated at the way
the legislative business was rushed through by Speaker Meira
Kumar and staged a walk-out.
The Lok Sabha was later adjourned sine die.
Pro-Telangana and pro-united Andhra Pradesh members
engaged in vigorous slogan-shouting to press their demands as
soon as the House met for the day, a repetition of the scenes
witnessed during the last three days.
While four TDP members trooped into the well carrying
placards saying `We want united AP`, pro-Telangana Congress
members held placards with `Double standard, TDP down down`
written on them.
Chanting slogans `December 9 is the black day`, the TDP
members were demanding that Home Minister P Chidambaram should
withdraw his announcement about creation of Telangana.
One of the six TDP members R Suresh was favouring creation
of Telangana and carried a placard which read `Jai Telangana`.
