Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla asked the opposition leaders to return to their seats. However, he failed to convince them as MPs continued shouting slogans, waving placards around the Well and even before the Chair.

Also, the SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal showed a placard to Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, during the party's protest against farm laws outside Parliament.

Sukhbir Singh Badal wrote: "Humiliation. Apathy. Injustice. Words aren't enough to express GoI's discriminatory approach towards the farming community. Farmers leading a peaceful agitation for 8 months but the NDA govt unmoved. Even PM is refusing to listen to Annadata. This doesn't bode well for democracy."
