Soon after the house met, Congress members sought permission from the chair to raise their issue but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan disallowed, saying the matter could be raised after Question Hour.
The TMC members meanwhile trooped near the Speaker’s podium, shouting slogans against the union government.
Mahajan urged the agitating members to allow smooth functioning of the house during the Question Hour and raise their issue later. But opposition members kept shouting slogans.
This prompted the Speaker to adjourn the House till noon.
Earlier, the TMC members staged a protest near Mahatma Gandhi’s statue in the parliament complex against the arrest of Sudip Bandopadhyay.
Bandopadhyay and Tapas Paul were arrested by CBI in connection with the alleged Rose Valley chit fund scam.
TMC, the ruling party in West Bengal, has been at loggerheads with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government over various issues, including demonetisation.
