Earlier in the day, opposition members walked out of Lok Sabha as their demand for an obituary reference on the soldiers who died in the terror attack on army camp in Jammu was rejected by the Speaker on the grounds that final details were yet to emerge. “I know seven soldiers have been killed…let the complete report come,” Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said. Later, when the opposition members demanded an adjournment motion on demonetisation rushing to the Well of the House, the Speaker adjourned the House.
