The Parliament on Monday could not transact any business as the opposition parties continued to stall proceedings over their demands, resulting a wash out of the second part of the budget session for eleven consecutive days.

In Lok Sabha, no-confidence motions tabled by arch rivals Telugu Desam Party and YSR Congress against the Modi government were not taken up in the Lok Sabha as the logjam continued amid no signs of thaw between the opposition and the government.

No substantive business could be transacted in last 11 days except for the passage of the Finance Bill, 2018 and relevant appropriation bills in the Lok Sabha.

Scenes were no different in Rajya Sabha and amid the din the House was adjourned for the day within minutes after protests by TDP members.

Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the House as opposition members trooped near his podium immediately after tabling of papers.
