New Delhi [India], March 21 (ANI): Disruptions in the functioning of Parliament continued on Tuesday, as both houses were adjourned till 2 pm amid repeated disruptions.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 2 pm, after the Opposition MPs raised slogans demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee inquiry into the Adani issue.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has called a meeting of leaders of all parties in his chamber at 1 pm.

The Rajya Sabha was also adjourned amid disruptions, and an all-party meeting was called by the speaker.

"I invite the floor leaders of all parties to my chamber at 11.30 am today. The House is adjourned to meet at 2 pm today," Jagdeep Dhankhar said.
