Rajya Sabha was adjourned till noon on Thursday amid uproar over Telangana issue after BJP MPs from Andhra Pradesh and BJP leaders staged a walkout.

The Parliament session began on Thursday amid uproar and slogan shouting over defence minister AK Antony's statements on killing of Indian soldiers in Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir.

MPs from Telangana also created ruckus as they demanded united Andhra as against the slogan shouting by Seemandhara MPs in Lok Sabha.

"If there are remarks that government officials will have to leave Hyderabad, I urge you to reconsider decision to discuss Telangana," said Arun Jaitley, leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha.
