New Delhi: The second week of the ongoing monsoon session in the Lok Sabha ended several hours earlier, with the House being adjourned till 11 am on Monday over continuous disruptions by the Opposition leaders demanding a discussion on the Pegasus snooping row and other issues.
Earlier last week, reports of the phone numbers of several individuals being allegedly on the target list of spyware Pegasus had resulted in loud protests across the country. Since the start of the monsoon session in the Parliament, the Opposition has been demanding discussion on the matter.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned till 2.30 after initially being suspended till noon amid the chaos over various issues.
