The Lok Sabha was adjourned for nearly an hour today after a relentless opposition demanded moving an adjournment motion to discuss the demonetisation issue.
As soon as the House met for the day, Leader of Congress in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge demanded that the issue of scrapping of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 denomination notes be discussed through an adjounment motion and not the rule proposed by the government.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said the government was willing to discuss

the issue and there was no need to press for an adjournment motion.As he said the entire nation was with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue of demonetisation, a united opposition raised slogans and rushed into the Well.
Members of Congress, TMC and Left parties were seen in the Well. "You don't want to run the House," Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said adjourning the proceedings for nearly 50 minutes till 12 noon.
Amid the din, only one question could be taken up during the Question Hour.
