The Opposition parties, including the Left, Congress, RJD and NCP, submitted the memorandum to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Tuesday, expressing their strong Opposition to the government, and demanded her intervention to protect the rights of MPs.

In their letter to the Speaker, Opposition parties said they have demanded for the past week a discussion on the Punjab National Bank fraud, but the government has not "come forward to settle the issue for the smooth functioning of the House".

While the Congress and the Trinamool Congress raised the issue of Rs 12,700 crore fraud in Punjab National Bank, the TRS sought increased reservation quota and AIADMK wanted the government to set up Cauvery management board.

Question Hour and Zero Hour were washed out after members from the TDP, Congress, AIADMK, TRS, etc. trooped into the Well.

Though the House resumed functioning after an hour the proceedings were stalled again by the protesting members forcing the Speaker to adjourn the House for the day and will resume on Wednesday.

"The government is organising disruption by making BJP allies rake up issues", said Congress floor leaders Mallikarjun K h a r g e a n d Jyotiraditya Scindia.

YSR Congress was also raising the Andhra Pradesh issue. Post that, The Rajya Sabha was also adjourned for the day amidst these ruckuses on minutes after it reassembled at 2 PM without transacting any business.

Mr Naidu said the disturbances in the House shows Parliament in a poor light. Since the legislation is a money bill, the Rajya Sabha, where the BJP lacks the numbers, has no power to hold it up and is obligated to return it to the Lok Sabha in two weeks.

They soon started to rise from their places to protest and some MPs from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh started moving towards the Well, prompting Naidu to adjourn the proceedings till 2 PM. The Opposition apprehends that the government may opt for an early adjournment of the budget session after rushing through the bills.
