Soon after the Lok Sabha assembled for the day, the Prime Minister entered the House, as all members in the treasury bench stood up and greeted him by thumping of desks, forcing TDP member Kesineni Nani to stop from asking a question related to Bharat Net Project.
The thumping the desks continued for sometime even after PM Modi took his seat. The House also reverberated with slogans of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' raised by some BJP members.
Apart from BJP MPs, even Biju Janata Dal member Baijayant Panda was also seen thumping the desk. He was also greeted by TRS leader Jithender Reddy who crossed over to PM Modi's seat to shake hands with him.
In Punjab, the Congress has got absolute majority.
