Immediately after the motion to suspend the Congress members was adopted, the presiding officer Meenakshi Lekhi adjourned the house for the day to meet again on Friday at 11 am.

Earlier the Lok Sabha proceedings were disrupted for the third day on Thursday as Opposition parties created an uproar demanding immediate discussion on the Delhi violence. The House was first adjourned soon after it met at 11 am, then at noon and finally for the day 3.10 pm.

The Opposition parties were demanding an immediate discussion on Delhi violence but Parliamentary affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said it can be taken up on March 11 in the Lower House.

Refusing to budge from their stand, the Opposition continued the protest and even stormed into the well on several occasions. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla was not present during the day and the proceedings were chaired by presiding officers.
