    New Delhi, Dec 21 (PTI)
    The proceedings of the Lok Sabha were adjourned for nearly 50 minutes Friday morning amid din created by AIADMK, TDP and AAP members over a variety of issues.

    There were no protests by Congress members who had been persistently attacking the government on the Rafale jet deal and demanding a joint parliamentary committee probe into the issue.

    Friday is the 8th day of the Winter session which has seen repeated disruptions over several issues, including Rafale, dam over Cauvery River and sops for Andhra Pradesh.

    Despite repeated adjournments, the Lok Sabha had on Thursday passed two bills.

    As soon as the House took up question hour, AIADMK members rushed to the Well holding placards and raising slogans opposing construction of a dam over River Cauvery.

    They were joined by members from the Telugu Desam Party who were demanding various sops for Andhra Pradesh.

    Some of the Aam Admi Party members also joined AIADMK and TDP. They were holding placards denouncing sealing, apparently in Delhi. 'Atrocities in the name of sealing' was one of the placards they were holding.

    As minister Sripad Naik was answering a question on the Ayush Ministry, some members in the Well hurled torn pieces of paper on the table where the Lok Sabha secretariat officials sit during proceedings.

    The table is located in the Well near the Speaker's podium.

    At this, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned proceedings till noon.
