[RxPG] New Delhi, May 15 - The Lok Sabha was adjourned abruptly before lunch Tuesday after Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee, along with Bharatiya Janata Party - members, disrupted the proceedings over what they called 'forced land acquisition' in West Bengal.

Banerjee demanded amendments to the Land Acquisitions Act and insisted that the central government respond to her demands immediately. As the treasury benches did not oblige, Banerjee and BJP members disrupted the proceedings, which also provoked some of the left members.

The chaotic scenes forced Speaker Somnath Chatterjee to adjourn the house till 2 p.m., 15 minutes ahead of the schedule.

West Bengal has been witness to violent protests and clashes in the past few months over the takeover of farmland for industry.

On March 14, at least 14 people were killed and over a hundred injured in Nandigram in West Bengal's East Midnapore district when police opened fire to quell a mob protesting takeover of agricultural land for a special economic zone and a chemical hub in collaboration with the Salim group of Indonesia.

The proposed SEZ was scrapped after the mayhem but Nandigram has continued to remain tense.

Banerjee's party has been fighting against the land acquisition.
