After Parliament was adjourned for the day without taking up the no-confidence motion, Samajwadi leader Ram Gopal Yadav said it was the government that was pitting the AIADMK at the centre of disturbance in the Lok Sabha to create disorder so that there could be no possibility of a debate.

Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker and senior AIADMK leader M Thambidurai told reporters that his party would not allow resumption of business in Parliament till the government gives an assurance on the floor of the House that the Cauvery River Management Board would be set up in accordance with the Supreme Court judgment by this month end.

Asked what the party would do if the no-confidence motion was taken up, he said "no proceedings will be allowed till the assurance comes.

"After the assurance we are not bothered about what the House does."
