New Delhi [India], Nov. 25 (ANI): The Lok Sabha was adjourned till November 28, 11 a.m. amid a continuing uproar by the opposition over the issue of demonetisation.

The deadlock in Parliament continues over demonetisation issue as both Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha witnessed repeated adjournments today.

As soon as the Lok Sabha met, Mallikarjun Kharge of Congress questioned the Prime Minister's reported remark that those criticising the demonetisation process do not have any problem with the preparedness, but have a problem that they did not have the time to prepare themselves.

Members belonging to other opposition parties including the Trinamool Congress, the Left, RJD and AIADMK trooped into the well of the House raising slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and demonetisation.

Amid the din, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan first adjourned the House till noon. Earlier, the House took up Question Hour.

In the Rajya Sabha, as soon as the House met for the day, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad raised the issue and said it is an insult to all opposition parties.

Professor Ram Gopal Yadav of the Samajwadi Party said that Prime Minister Modi has branded all opposition parties as dishonest.

Sharad Yadav of the JD(U) said that the Prime Minister had made a serious allegation.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the opposition is coming with new excuses every time to run away from the discussion on demonetisation.

As the din continued, Deputy Charman Professor P.J. Kurien adjourned the proceeding till noon.(ANI)
