New Delhi/UNI: Parliament's lower house Lok Sabha was adjourned till 2 pm on Tuesday amid Opposition protests over the Adani issue.

Several Opposition members trooped into the well of the House, and raised slogans, demanding a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Hindenburg Research report over Adani Group.

"We want JPC," they shouted after the Question Hour started.

The Hindenburg Research report alleged that Adani Group had engaged in stock manipulation and accounting fraud schemes over the course of decades.

"Please go back to your seat. Yesterday, I have asked leaders of all political parties to allow the House to function," Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said to the Opposition members in an apparent reference to the logjam in the Lower House over the Adani issue.

Later, the Speaker adjourned the House till 2 pm.

Earlier in the day, a meeting of Opposition parties, which have been demanding a JPC probe was held at the Office of Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge here on Tuesday.

Among the parties, JD (U), J&K NC and NCP attended the meeting.

Meanwhile, Kharge took a dig at the BJP-led government at the Centre over the same and asked why the government was "running away from debate".

"Why is the Government stalling discussions in the Parliament? Is it not the responsibility of the Government to run the house and address issues of national interest?

"If there is ‘Saaf Niyat, Sahi Vikas’, why running away from debate, PM Saab?" the Congress chief asked.
