Aditya Nath argued that he should be given an opportunity to speak first. Provoked by this, SP members again trooped into the Well. As ruckus continued, the House was adjourned till 11.30 AM. When it reassembled, similar scenes were witnessed and BJP members did not allow SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to speak.

Two Congress members from Seemandhra region kept shouting in the Well holding placards demanding united Andhra Pradesh. Amid din, the House was adjourned till noon. In the Rajya Sabha, SP members were on their feet alleging attack by BJP workers on their Delhi office, a charge strongly denied by the main opposition party. Chairman Hamid Ansari's repeated efforts to restore normalcy in the House did not yield result. He first adjourned the House for 15 minutes and then till noon. Earlier, senior Congress leader B K Hariprasad, who was elected from Karnataka to the Upper House, took oath.
