Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned for the day on Monday after opposition parties staged a protest over the Adani issue.

The House will reconvene on Wednesday, with Tuesday being a holiday on account of Mahavir Jayanti.

Earlier, the House was adjourned till 2 pm after obituary references to incumbent MP Girish Bapat and former MP Innocent, who passed away recently.

Bapat, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Pune, died on March 29, while Innocent, a former independent MP from the Chalakudy constituency in Kerala's Thrissur, passed away on March 26.

The Lok Sabha now adjourns for a few hours as a mark of respect for a sitting member who has passed away.

Earlier, the House used to adjourn for the day after paying obituary to the member.

When the House reconvened at 2 pm, the opposition members kept sloganeering against the government, demanding a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe into allegations involving industrialist Gautam Adani's business group. 

The Chair adjourned the House amidst the din.

Since the second part of the Parliament's Budget Session began on March 13, the Lok Sabha has witnessed daily disruptions, with the opposition demanding a JPC probe into the Adani issue.

The ruling BJP members too had been demanding an apology from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his remarks on Indian democracy made in the United Kingdom recently. Gandhi has since been disqualified as a Lok Sabha member following his conviction by a court in a 2019 criminal defamation case.
