Janata Dal-United MP Sharad Yadav on Tuesday said blocking the live telecast of the Lok Sabha proceedings was beyond tolerance.

Mr Yadav and Trinamool Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi walked out of the Lok Sabha after the live telecast was stopped.

“As soon as the debate on Telangana started, the live telecast of the proceedings was stopped and this is beyond tolerance,” Mr Yadav told the media.

“So we decided we cannot be a part of such a debate.”

The Lok Sabha Tuesday passed the Telangana bill by voice vote amid pandemonium.

Lok Sabha Secretary General S. Bal Shekar said the proceedings of the afternoon session could not be telecast due to a “technical problem”.
