New Delhi: The Lok Sabha in its Winter Parliamentary Session proceeding on Thursday managed to pass two bills before adjourning for the day amid protests by Opposition parties Congress and TDP on various issues.

The two bills which were passed were the Consumer Protection Bill, 2018 and the National Trust for Welfare of Persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and Multiple Disabilities (Amendment) Bill, 2018.

Thursday was the seventh working day of the Winter session which saw disruptions and adjournments over the Rafale jet seal, special status for Andhra Pradesh and protests over the proposed construction of a dam on the Cauvery river.

Since the Winter Session began started on December 12, the proceedings have been adjourned as a result of disruptions over the Rafale jet seal, special status for Andhra Pradesh and protests over the proposed construction of a dam on the Cauvery river.

Members from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka fought over a proposal to build a dam on the Cauvery River while Congress members were demanded a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the Rafale deal.

Meanwhile, Telugu Desam Party MPs have been demanding special category status for Andhra Pradesh and the setting up of a steel plant in the state. Earlier, when Rajya Sabha met for the day, the proceedings barely lasted for 10 minutes, with Mahajan adjourning the House till noon.
