Tuesday December 10, 2013 4:15 PM, IANS

The Lok Sabha was Tuesday adjourned for the day and the Rajya Sabha till 2 p.m. following an uproar over issues that included Telangana and the 2G spectrum allocation.

In the Lok Sabha, the house was first adjourned till 12 noon, following protests over various issues that also included proposed creation of a Telangana state and the Joint Parliametnary Committee (JPC) report on 2G spectrum allocation.

Later, Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the Lok Sabha for the day after treasury benches raised a ruckus when she said she has received notices for no-confidence motion against the government.

In the Rajya Sabha, the question hour was lost as members raised various issues.

When the house reassembled, ruckus started again as soon as the JPC report on 2G spectrum allocation was presented.

BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad raised a point of order, saying the dissent note given by his party members was changed by the JPC chairman.

"This report should not be allowed to be defended on the floor of the house," Prasad said.

Leader of Opposition Arun Jaitley requested the chair to give a ruling if any committee chairman can "alter the substance of a dissent note".

Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien, however, said the he could not make a comment as he had not read the report.

Kurien added that there is no rule "that permits discussion on a report before it is tabled".

Agitated BJP members trooped near the chairman's podium as the report was tabled. The members started raising slogans, telling the government to "be ashamed".

Telugu Desam Party members also went near the chairman's podium, raising "Save Andhra Pradesh" slogans.

Members from the DMK were also seen making noisy protests from their seats.

Members of Left parties, AIADMK, Trinamool Congress, and the Samajwadi Party also stood at their seats.

Amidst the pandemonium, Kurien adjourned the house till 2 p.m.
