NEW DELHI: The Lok Sabha was on Friday adjourned till noon over the Congress’ assertion of insulting former union minister and Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader E. Ahamed by going ahead with Union Budget presentation.

Congress leader K. C. Venugopal earlier in the day gave an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha, alleging unethical approach by the RML Hospital and government towards former E. Ahamed and his family.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge said a senior leader shouldn't be insulted like this.

Despite the opposition’s call for the postponement of the Union Budget for a day as a respect to the departed soul, the government went ahead and presented it in Parliament.

Earlier, Ahamed’s family had lashed out at the administration of the RML Hospital where the veteran leader was admitted for not being allowed to meet him or even consulted regarding his medical procedures.

The funeral of Ahamed, who died in the early hours of Wednesday in Delhi following a cardiac arrest, was held in his native city Kannur, Kerala, yesterday.
