Shekhawat said he was suspending the Question Hour to take up discussion under Rule 168 which entails voting.
The discussion on the motion was initiated by senior Bharatiya Janata Party member Rajnath Singh. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was present in the House when the debate started.
On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha took up an Opposition-sponsored adjournment motion on the Commission's report which was defeated.
