New Delhi: Parliament remained stalled for the seventh consecutive day as opposition and a section of ruling alliance members created uproar on FDI in retail and various issues leading to adjournments in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha till noon.

No sooner Speaker Meira Kumar called for the Question Hour signaling a start to the day's proceedings than members rushed to the aisles demanding a rollback of the controversial decision to allow FDI in retail. Some members of the ruling Congress as also of the TDP were seen waving placards demanding creation of a separate Telangana state.

Members of Trinamool Congress, a key partner in the government, were also seen waving placards and raising slogans on rollback of the decision to allow 51 percent FDI in multi-brand retail and 100 percent FDI in single brand retail. TDP, CPI-M and Shiv Sena members rushed to the Well of the Lok Sabha while others continued their protests from the aisles.

The Speaker's repeated pleas of 'Let us run the House' failed to restore order as members continued their protests. Apparently sensing the mood, the Speaker adjourned the proceedings till noon.
