As the house plunged into a chaos, Speaker S N Patro adjourned the house thrice and finally for lunch till1500 hours.

Realising that the house could not be run smoothly the Speaker first adjourned the house at 1040hours for 15 minutes and again from 1058 hours for ten minutes as the members continued their protest and did not allow the functioning of the house.
As the impasse continued, the Speaker convened an all party meeting in a bid to bring normalcy to the house and adjourned the house till 1130hours.
The Speaker then adjourned the house till 1500hours as the all party meeting failed to resolve the issue.
