The Lok Sabha was Friday adjourned till 2 p.m. over the sliding rupee and continuing protests against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

As soon as the house assembled, members from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Congress raised slogans demanding that Andhra Pradesh remain united.

The protesting members were among the 12 who were suspended for five sittings by the speaker Aug 23 for disrupting the house on the same issue.

This forced Speaker Meira Kumar to adjourn the house till noon.

When the house re-assembled, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spoke on the economy.

Bharatiya Janata Party MPs and its allies then walked out, led by opposition leader Sushma Swaraj.

Members of the Trinamool Congress showed placards and raised slogans against the prime minister over the fall of the rupee.

The house was then adjourned till 12.45 p.m. and again till 2 following similar disruptions.
