Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned till 12 noon after the opposition staged protests with open umbrella and disrupted the House.

The protest led by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) was joined by the Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP) in the well of the House.

Despite repeated requests from Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, TMC MPs Idris ali, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Sultan Ahamed and Ratna Dey Nag refused to remove the open umbrellas with slogan “bring back black money” written on it.

The MPs were shouting slogans like “where is black money, PM should answer, ” and ‘where are the good days you promised”.

Though the Speaker took up the question hour, the loud shouting disrupted the proceedings. The Speaker warned the MPs they should not introduce “new style” of protests.

The government has listed the Delhi special police establishment amendment bill for introduction in today’s list of business.

        MP disrupting proceedings should be barred for that day and p the legislation in their absence. Speaker should be firm and winter session should be prolonged for 3 months and days no work is done MP should not be paid for the allowance and diruptying MP should not be paid when they were barred.

          Disruption of Parliament proceedings by any one must be stopped altogether. It is a criminal waste of huge amounts of public money and hampers serious work, page of bills, discussions. It is high time persons disrupting Parliament proceedings are debarred.
