New Delhi : Opposition parties, led by the Congress, on Thursday, forced multiple adjournments in the two Houses of Parliament. They demanded a response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the hardships caused to people by the demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day soon after it convened. The Rajya Sabha, however, tried to transact some business. But the Opposition demand for Prime Minister’s presence in House, Treasury benches’ protest againts LoP Ghulam Nabi Azad’s comments on ATM deaths and the AIADMK’s demand for a discussion on Cauvery led way to slogan-shouting and vocal protests from both sides. After repeated pleas, the Chair adjourned the House till 11 a.m. on Friday.
