    According to ANI, Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan moved an adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha over RBI issue and demonetisation.

Parliament Winter Session Day 3 Latest updates: The Lower House of Parliament was adjourned for the day, following the din that ensued. Despite repeated requests from the Speaker to curb the noise, Opposition MPs continued sloganeering.

Opposition members wasted no time in shouting slogans and creating ruckus in both the Houses of Parliament.

The third day of the Winter Session in Parliament is expected to be stormy, as Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan has given an adjournment motion notice in Lok Sabha over issues of RBI and demonetisation, ANI reported.

The Rafale deal is likely to cause ruckus in the Parliament as Congress MP Sunil Kumar Jakhar has moved an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over the issue.

In the Rajya Sabha, AAP's Sanjay Singh has given a Zero Hour notice in Rajya Sabha about the issue of sealing in New Delhi.

On the second day of the Winter Session on Wednesday, the Lok Sabha was adjourned without transacting much business amid unrelenting protests both by the Opposition and NDA's ally Shiv Sena.

While the Opposition rallied over the Rafale fighter jet deal, BJP ally Shiv Sena demanded early construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya.

The House witnessed a ruckus during Question Hour soon after it met. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge got up from his seat and wanted to speak on a notice given by party member Sunil Jakhar for moving an adjournment motion on the Rafale deal.

But Kharge was not allowed to do so.

In the Monsoon session in August, the Congress had raised the same issue accusing the government of trying to mislead the nation on the defence deal with France.

The Congress was soon joined by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and other Opposition members, who trooped near the Speaker's podium and started sloganeering.

Unable to conduct the Question Hour, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan initially adjourned the House till noon.

However, soon after the House reassembled, members of the Congress, Trinamool Congress, TDP and other Opposition parties were again on their feet. They again trooped to the Speaker's podium.

Once again, the Rafale deal was raised by the Congress, while the DMK raised the Cauvery waters distribution issue between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, and the TDP demanded special status for Andhra Pradesh.

The Shiv Sena members also trooped near the Speaker's podium raising their demand for early construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya. They raised slogans saying all Hindus demand the Ram temple.

Mahajan urged the agitating members not to disturb the functioning of the House but the Opposition as well as the Shiv Sena members did not listen.

Amid the din, the Dam Safety Bill was introduced by Minister of State for Water Resources Arjun Ram Meghwal.

As the noisy protests continued, Mahajan adjourned the House for the day.

Of the business that could be transacted during the day was the oath taking by two newly elected members VS Ugrappa from Bellary and LR Shivarama Gowda from Mandya in Karnataka.

Ugrappa from the Congress and Gowda from the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) had defeated BJP candidates in the November by-polls.

There were obituary references to 11 former members including Madan Lal Khurana, ND Tiwari, CK Jaffer Sharief earlier in the day.

Before the House met for the day, the TDP and the Shiv Sena were seen protesting outside Parliament.
