NEW DELHI -- The Lok Sabha was adjourned till noon on Monday after opposition parties disrupted proceedings over the death of Kerala MP and former union minister E. Ahamed.

Carrying posters of Ahamed, the opposition parties alleged delay in the announcement of his demise to ensure the Union Budget was presented as scheduled on 1 February.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the proceedings till noon.

The Lok Sabha member from Mallapuram in Kerala had suffered cardiac arrest during the President's address to Parliament on 31 January.
