The Lok Sabha was adjourned till April 24 after the Telangana issue rocked the House during the question hour on Friday.

Urging Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the House as soon as the proceedings started at 11 a.m., Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Congress MPs from the region shouted pro-Telangana slogans.

The Speaker ordered tabling of papers and took up Zero Hour amidst the uproar over the demand for creation of a separate Telangana.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi was present in the House and was having discussions with Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is in charge of party affairs in Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, some opposition members termed the disruption as a "conspiracy" by the government so that the proceedings did not take place.
