Updated : 2019-11-18 16:21:48

The Winter Session of Lok Sabha began on a stormy note on Monday with protests by the Congress and other Opposition members on various issues.

Soon after oath-taking of four members and paying condolences to members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha who died in recent months, the opposition members criticised the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Around 30 members from the Congress trooped into the well of the house within minutes of the commencement of the Question Hour. The lawmakers shouted slogans and demanding that the government debate the J&K issue and clarify why former chief minister Farooq Abdullah was still in detention.
