New Delhi: After disrupting the Question Hour in Lok Sabha and forcing adjournment of proceedings for an hour, Congress MPs from Telangana on Friday staged a sit in at the portico of the Parliament House voicing demands of forming Telangana a separate state.

Holding posters, eight Congress members from Telangana demanded "fulfilment" of promise made by the Centre to carve out a separate state from Andhra Pradesh.
   
As soon as the House took up Question Hour, Congress members from Telangana and MPs from TDP and TRS rushed to the Well holding posters saying "honour the commitment for Telangana" and "jan bhavna ka samman karo" (respect public sentiments).
   
Amid din, only one question cold be taken up. As the members raised slogans, BJP members termed the entire exercise as a "conspiracy" by the government so that the proceedings do not take place. Speaker Meira Kumar then adjourned the House till noon.
