Members of Congress and Left repeatedly stormed the Well, carrying placards and raising slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government for not acting against Swaraj and Raje even as Speaker Sumitra Mahajan warned of action over the 'unruly' behaviour.

Displaying black ribbons, Congress members repeatedly raised placards with slogans such as: 'Bade Modi meherban, toh chhote Modi pehelwan' (a Hindi idiom meaning that a small person is strong if supported by a powerful person) and 'PM chuppi todo' (PM, break your silence) and 'Modi ji 56 inch dikhao, Sushma, Raje ko turant hatao' (Show your 56 inch chest by removing Swaraj and Raje.

Members of the RJD and NCP were seen supporting the Opposition demand. TRS members also contributed to the uproar by raising the demand for a separate High Court for Telangana. At present, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana share the same High Court, two years after the bifurcation.

Mahajan disapproved of the action of the protesting members and warned “In the event of disorderly conduct, I would be constrained to initiate appropriate disciplinary action against erring members". She said she has always provided 'adequate' opportunity to all sections of the House to raise matters of topical interest and hoped that all the members would adhere to the set norms of etiquette and standards of behaviour.

This added fuel to the fire and immediately Congress and Left members again stormed the Well while those from the TRS trooped into the Well in support of their demand for a separate High Court for Telangana.
