In the Lok Sabha, when the House reassembled after first adjournment at 2 PM, treasury and opposition bench members again started sloganeering. The ruling party members were demanding Mr. Gandhi’s apology over his remarks while members from Congress, DMK, NCP and others were on their feet demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the Adani Group issue. The Presiding Officers urged the protesting members to maintain order in the House, but in vain. Later, the House was adjourned for the day.
