New Delhi, May 14 : The Parliament today got adjourned as both the Houses, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, witnessed uproar over the issue of Babli dam, being built across the Godavari River in Nanded District of Maharashtra.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha witnessed three adjournments in the pre-lunch session over the issue and after the lunch break both the houses were adjourned for the day.

K Yerrannaidu, the leader of the party in the Lok Sabha, initiated the protest and he along with his party men were on their feet as soon as the House assembled.

In the Rajya Sabha too, the party's MPs demonstrated over the impact of Babli dam on the AP farmers.
