When Speaker Sumitra Mahajan rejected notices for adjournment of the Question Hour including one on the Punjab Dalit issue, Congress members trooped into the Well raising slogans against the Prime Minister and the SAD-BJP government in Punjab over the alleged chopping off of limbs of two dalit youth at a farmhouse in Abohar.

As Congress members shouted slogans like 'PM sharam karo' (PM shame, shame) and 'dismiss Punjab government', six BJP members entered the Well and offered roses to the agitating Congress MPs.
Soon some senior BJP members pulled their party colleagues out of the Well. A few roses were seen lying on the table of the Lok Sabha secretariat officials inside the Well.

As soon as the House met for the day, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said she had disallowed notices of adjournment motions on different issues and the issues can be raised later. Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Khare said the Dalit issue is important and his party should be allowed to raise it.
When questions were asked on farmers' plight and insect attack on cotton crop, the Speaker "there is a question on farmers, but they (Congress members) have nothing to do with the farmers."
