PDP members were supported by independent lawmaker Er Rasheed who snatched the mike of assembly secretary. The chorus compelled the speaker to adjourn the proceedings of the house minutes after it was resumed after the first adjournment on Friday.

As soon as the LA resumed after it was adjourned due to the uproar by PDP members, the said members again raised slogans to press for the return of the body of Afzal Guru. They were again joined by Tarigami and Hakim Yasin who walked out but the foot in mouth lawmaker, Er Rasheed, came crying and snatched the mike in front of assembly speaker.The sloganeering of PDP members and Er Rasheed caused a chaos in the house and nothing was audible amidst the uproar.
