Protests by members over JPC report on spectrum scam, price rise, Telangana and the death of children in Muzaffarnagar relief camps disrupted Parliament on Monday leading to repeated adjournments.

As soon as Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha assembled for the day, members of Telugu Desam Party, BSP and the Left rushed to the Well raising various demands.

Both the Houses were adjourned twice amid continued slogan-shouting - the first time till noon and then till 2 PM.

In the Lok Sabha, TDP members opposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and displayed placards in the Well that said 'Save Andhra Pradesh'.

BSP members displayed copies of news reports regarding the plight of Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh) riot victims staying in relief camps.

Members of Left parties protested disallowing of discussion on the price situation after they moved adjournment motions on the issue. Some MPs from Kerala protested against the import of rubber and demanded a complete ban on it.

As the uproar continued, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the House till noon. When the House reassembled, similar situation persisted as papers were being laid, forcing her to adjourn the House till 2 PM.

In Rajya Sabha too, BSP members trooped into the Well to demand dismissal of Uttar Pradesh government as they displayed newspaper reports saying children had died in Muzaffarnagar relief camps.

SP members were on their feet raising the issue of price hike, but they could not be heard in the din.

Two TDP members - C M Ramesh and Y S Chaudhary - too were in the Well displaying placard in favour of united Andhra Pradesh.

Chairman Hamid Ansari repeatedly asked members not to display banners and return to their seats.

As members did not heed his request, he adjourned the House till noon.
