Lok Sabha did not function on Monday following an uproar over the Women’s Reservation Bill with SP, RJD and JD(U) members repeatedly trooping into the well to stall the proceedings.
The House saw three adjournments on the same issue before the Chair called it a day as members opposed to the Bill remained unrelenting.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and JD(U) president Sharad Yadav led their slogan-shouting members into the well each time the House was called to order.
At one time, SP member Shailendra Kumar tore some legislative documents and threw pieces of paper into the well, even as the Chair took up the listed business.
Lone member of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen Asaduddin Owaisi too joined the protest, raising slogans against the Bill and rushed to the well.
As pandemonium continued, the Chair adjourned the House for the day.
Similar scenes were witnessed throughout the day, as the opponents of the Bill in its present form demanded a quota within the quota for OBCs, SCs, STs and minorities.
