New Delhi: The second budget session of the parliament has majorly been a washout for 12 consecutive days after vehement opposition protests against issues like the banking scam, Cauvery issue and according of special status to Andhra Pradesh. In the Lok Sabha, the no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government was moved by Chandrababu Naidu's TDP and his arch-rival YSR Congress on Tuesday. Congress, Left Front, Samajwadi Party, Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress and the AIMIM led by Asaduddin Owaisi, had pledged support to the motion.

Here are the LIVE updates from the parliament session:
The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day without transacting any business after Congress and parties from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh disrupted proceedings over various issues.
Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the house barely four minutes after the proceedings began, as members of opposition parties staged protests in the well.
