New Delhi: The Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day on Friday on the fifth day of the Monsoon Session after the opposition raised slogans against the government on various issues. Earlier the house was adjourned till 12 pm by Speaker Om Birla.

After the house was reassembled the opposition continued to raise slogans after which Kirit Solanki, who was in the chair adjourned the house for the entire day.

Several resolutions which included the appointment of members in various Parliamentary panels were passed in the brief period during which the house was functional.

The appointment was necessary as several new ministers have been inducted into the government in the recent cabinet expansion.
