Earlier, TDP members entered the well opposing creation of separate Telangana state. Biswajit Daimary (Bodoland People's Front) too entered the well carrying a placard. While TPD members raised banners against division of Andhra Pradesh, Daimary held banner that reads: "If Telengana, Why Not Bodoland?"
"I am sorry you can't do this. No banner shall be shown," Chairman Hamid Ansari said to unheeding members, asking them to go back to their seats. Upset with members not listening to his appeal, Ansari adjourned the House saying that he was forced to do so because of ‘disturbances created by three members in the well.’
Similar scenes were witnessed in the Lok Sabha which was also adjourned for 10 minutes following pandemonium over decision to create separate Telengana.

The Lower House witnessed slogan shouting by members against the proposal to form Telangana and demand for Bodoland during Question. Soon after new members took oath and obituary references were made, TDP members and Congress MPs opposed to Telangana walked into the Well and shouted slogans.

TDP members, who were also protesting against TRS Chief K Chandrasekar Rao's remarks that officials who hail from Seemandhra but are working in Telangana region will have to go back, were heard shouting ‘We want justice’.
Congress MPs from Andhra Pradesh opposing Telangana walked into the Well to press for their demand. They carried placards which read, ‘We want justice for Seemandhra area’ and ‘We want united Andhra Pradesh’.

Seemandhra MPs protest outside parliament

Members of Parliament from Rayalaseema and Andhra regions on Monday protested outside Parliament demanding that the Central Government withdraw its decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

MPs from Bodo region of Assam also held protests demanding the creation of a new state by bifurcating Assam.

Seemandhra MPs-led by TDP M Venugopal Reddy, held placards that read ‘We Demand Justice’. MPs from Rayalaseema and Andhra regions have been protesting against the Central Government's decision to carve out Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.

The Central Government's decision has fuelled demands for statehood from some other regions. A delegation of Bodo leaders last week met Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde urging him to take steps for the creation of a new state by bifurcating Assam.
