The Lok Sabha was adjourned Tuesday almost as soon as it began. 

As soon as proceedings began, chants of "we want justice" echoed through the house. The house has been adjourned till Wednesday morning. 

PTI reported that the house was adjourned till noon following protests over different issues by several parties. 

Stormy scenes had been expected. 

The YSR Congress and the TDP have been trying since last week to table a motion for a no-trust vote against the government over the Andhra "special status" row. 

They have so far been unsuccessful because of the adjournments. 

More stormy scenes can be expected tomorrow: 


The Rajya Sabha meanwhile was able to conduct a little business. External Affairs Minister was able to inform the house that the 39 Indians missing in Iraq had been confirmed as dead, before that house too was adjourned for the day.
