As soon as the Lower House convened for the day, members from treasury benches stood up and raised slogans against Rahul Gandhi, seeking his apology in Parliament for his remarks.

In the meantime, opposition members rushed into the well of the House and raised slogans seeking a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) probe in the Adani Enterprises issue.
