Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh assembly was adjourned again Tuesday without any debate on the bill for formation of separate Telangana state as the stalemate continued due to strong opposition from Seemandhra legislators.

Speaker N. Manohar adjourned the house thrice, the third time for the day as the house was rocked by utter pandemonium.

The Seemandhra legislators of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSR Congress party surrounded the speaker's podium raising slogans in support of united Andhra Pradesh. The lawmakers from Telangana countered them with the demand for immediate debate on the bill.

For the fourth consecutive day, the house was adjourned without taking up the bill for the debate.

The four-hour long meeting of Business Advisory Committee (BAC) Monday failed to break the impasse with Seemandhra legislators of TDP and YSR Congress refusing to budge from their stand.
