PTI In this TV grab, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar chairs a session on Friday. The House could not function for the fifth consecutive working day due to uproar over issues including Telangana.

The notices for no-confidence motion could not be taken up in the Lok Sabha even on Friday, as uproar over various issues led to a washout of proceedings for the fifth consecutive working day.

The House saw two adjournments till 1 pm before being adjourned for the day without transacting any substantive business.

Disruptions started as soon as the House met for the day with members raising various issues ranging from Telangana to UPSC exams. The uproar led to the adjournment of the House till noon.

As slogan-shouting continued, Speaker Meira Kumar kept pleading with agitating members to restore order so that the fate of three notices for no-confidence motion could be decided.

She said she wanted to ascertain whether leave of the House could be granted for consideration of the three notices given by six Congress members from Seemandhra region as also TDP and YSR Congress.

Ms. Kumar said she could take up the matter related to the notices only if the House is in order.

However, as several members continued with the slogan-shouting in the Well, she said the matter could not be taken up because of the din and adjourned the House for the day.

I belive, Congress going with Telangana bill without considering the People wishes/issues is a big loss to them as well as to integrity of Democracy and Election system in Democracy.

Winter session of Lok Sabha should not be adjourned until all the bills are placed and discussed. MPs should not be provided any allowances for the days lost. Slogan shouting MPs must be suspended from attending further sessions

The problem of the "Lok Sabha" is now getting defined. Our MP's must
realise that the Winter session of Parliament is not just an occasion to
visit Delhi along with family(for some of them). They need to understand
the simple fact that many people sacrificed their lives so that we could
be free. Where have we gone wrong ? Can't our lawmakers be more sensitive
and lead more responsible and meaningful lives?

Does it not occur to those who are stalling the proper functioning of the parliament that their behaviour is unbecoming of their position and trust reposed in them by the people who elected them to their high office. Our politicians are an affront to civility.
