The Lok Sabha was today adjourned for the day after paying tributes to former Haryana Chief Minister and sitting member Bhajan Lal, who died during the inter-session period.

As soon as the House met on the first day of the monsoon session of Parliament, Speaker, Ms Meira Kumar, made obituary reference to Lal, a member from Hissar, who died on June 3.

She described him as an able administrator and champion of the causes of the masses and worked for the uplift of the weaker sections throughout his political career spanning over four decades.

The House also made obituary references to former members Dharmabhiksham, Sribatcha Digal, Sripal Singh Yadav, L S Tur and Chaturanan Mishra.

The House also mourned the loss of lives in twin attacks in Norway, the terrorist attack in Mumbai on July 13, train accidents at Thanagaon on July 7 and at Fatehpur, both in Uttar Pradesh, on July 10.

“I am sure the House would join me in expressing grief over these terrorist attacks and tragic accidents,” Ms Kumar said.

The members observed silence for a while before the House was adjourned for the day.
