New Delhi, Jan 2 (PTI) Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned till noon on Wednesday following protests by members from the AIADMK and the TDP over various issues.

Soon after the House convened for the day, members from the AIADMK trooped into the Well protesting against construction of a dam across the Cauvery river. Many of them were also holding placards.

Later, members from the TDP also joined them. They were demanding special financial assistance for Amravati, the capital of Andhra Pradesh.

Around 30 members from both the parties were in the Well.

As soon as the AIADMK members started their protest, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said that their problem would not be solved like this and asked them to discuss the issue with the minister concerned.

“I don’t think it sends the right message to your state… this unruly behaviour must stop,” she told the protesting members.

A question related to vacancies in lower judiciary was taken up during the Question Hour, which went on for around 20 minutes.

As the din continued, Mahajan adjourned the proceedings till noon.
