Both the Houses of Parliament have failed to transact any business since the beginning of the second part of the Budget session of Parliament on March 5.

The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha faced repeated adjournments before adjourning for the day. Last week, the TDP also had pulled out two Ministers from the Modi government to ventilate their grievances for not granting Special Category status to the "bifurcated" Andhra Pradesh.

Telugu Desam Party MPs staged their protest both inside and outside the Houses.

As soon as the House met at noon after the first adjournment, Members from Telugu Desam Party, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kaghazam, Yuvajan Shramik Ryuthu Congress Party, Telangana Rashtra Samiti and All India Trinamool Congress, trooped into the Well, raising anti-government slogans and displaying placards. TRS members raised the issue of increasing job reservation quota in Telangana while AIADMK pressed the demand for setting up of Cauvery Management Board. The amendment facilitates the orderly growth of the chit funds sector.
