Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) The Lok Sabha was Friday adjourned sine die after a month-long monsoon session that witnessed 13 days of disruption in a 20-day session.

The session ended after the last day’s proceedings too were disrupted by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over coal block allocations. Other opposition parties joined the protests over various issues, including the alleged involvement of a central minister from the DMK in the coal block allocations that the Comptroller and Auditor General had said caused a presumptive loss of Rs.1.86 lakh crore ($37 billion).

Speaker Meira Kumar adjourned the Lok Sabha sine die after some papers listed in the day’s business were laid on the table of the house at 12 noon, when the house met again following question hour being washed out earlier in the day because of a short-term adjournment.

The monsoon session this year began Aug 8.
