The presentation of the Interim General Budget for 2009-10 was on Monday interrupted briefly as the Lok Sabha adjourned after JD(S) member M P Veerendrakumar complained of uneasiness.

Speaker Somnath Chatterjee adjourned the House for ten minutes till 12 noon after asking External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee to stop his presentation of the budget.

Chatterjee called for doctors as members rushed to the aid of the 73-year-old member from Kerala. He was rushed in an ambulance to the clinic in the neighbouring Parliament House annexe.

Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said the member complained of a bit of breathlessness.
