Similar scenes were earlier witnessed when Question Hour began after obituary references to 11 former MPs.

Congress members were demanding a probe by a Joint Parliamentary Committee into the alleged corruption in the Rafale aircraft deal while Shiv Sena MPs staged protests demanding immediate construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Members belonging to the AIADMK raised slogans demanding justice for Tamil Nadu farmers living along the Cauvery delta and TDP members demanded a railway zone at Vishkhapatnam.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan tried to pacify members but in vain.

As the ruckus continued, the Speaker adjourned the House for the day.

Earlier, the Speaker congratulated Rajya Sabha member Marry Kom, who won her sixth gold medal at the World Boxing Championship, and Sonia Chahal for winning a silver medal.

“I congratulate both on behalf of the House,” she said.

The Speaker also congratulated ISRO for successfully launching the heaviest satellite recently from French Guiana.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Mallikarjun Kharge were among those present in the House.
