After this, she allowed members to lay listed papers on the table. She also rejected several adjournment notices given by members including Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Dushyant Chautala and Dharmendra Yadav.

As several members from Congress, TMC and SP trooped into the Well raising anti-government slogans, Mahajan adjourned the House for the day.

Earlier, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for nearly an hour soon after it met for the day as a determined opposition pitched for discussing the demonetisation issue under adjournment motion.

It was pandemonium from the word go as high drama was witnessed when Akshay Yadav tore some papers in the Well and flung it across, as several members of Congress, TMC and SP rushed into the Well raising anti-government slogans.
