Both the Upper and Lower houses of Parliament adjourned proceedings within an hour of starting, as the results of the Assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh started pouring in on Monday.

Both houses were also rocked by protests by the Opposition, which demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi apologise for alleging that his predecessor Manmohan Singh spoke to Pakistani officials about the Gujarat elections.

Both houses will now meet at 11 am on Tuesday.

The Lok Sabha was first adjourned for an hour minutes after it met on Monday, after Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirit Somaiya, who had the first question listed, said his party was winning both Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, Firstpost reported.

Soon after, the Opposition started protesting, forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to suspend the proceedings till noon.

When the house reconvened, Opposition members again shouted slogans demanding an apology from the Prime Minister for his comments about Singh, forcing the proceedings to be adjourned, The Hindu reported.

In the Rajya Sabha, Congress leader Anand Sharma tried to start a discussion, according to The Hindu. Here too, Opposition members shouted slogans and trooped to the Well of the house. Rajya Sabha Chair and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu first adjourned the house till noon, and then till Tuesday morning after slogan-shouting continued when the house met again.

Earlier, PM Modi was seen flashing the victory sign before he entered Parliament on Monday, ANI reported.
