Lok Sabha adjourned till noon

New Delhi: The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 12 p.m. on Monday after witnessing unrelenting protests by the Congress demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe in the Rafale fighter jet deal.

Soon after the House assembled, the Congress members trooped near the Speaker’s podium and started sloganeering demanding the probe in the deal for 36 ready-to-fly Rafale jets.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan tried to conduct the Question Hour but the protests continued, forcing her to adjourn the House till 12 p.m.
