Lok Sabha was adjourned till noon today without transacting much business as TDP and Congress members again protested on the Telangana issue, a day after government moved a motion seeking suspension of 10 members from Andhra Pradesh for stalling the proceedings repeatedly.

Soon after obituary reference, Speaker Meira Kumar took up the first listed question and asked health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to reply.

As the minister rose to speak, four TDP members walked into the Well holding placards demanding justice for Andhra Pradesh.

Several Congress members from Andhra Pradesh walked up to the Well holding placards which read "We want united Andhra Pradesh". They also raised slogans demanding justice.

The protesters were mainly those whose suspension has been sought for the rest of the session  by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath.

The Speaker adjourned the House till noon even as Azad was answering a supplementary put by Surendra Singh Nagar (BSP).
