Uproar in Odisha assembly

Bhubaneswar,August19:The Monsoon of State Assembly today witnessed pandemonium and disruptions as both the opposition and ruling party members created ruckus shouting slogans and counter-slogans.

Speaker Niranjan Pujari first adjourned the house till 12.30 p.m. and later till 3 p.m. As the house did not return to normalcy even after the two adjournments, the speaker extended the adjournment till 3.30 p.m. and later called an all-party meeting to resolve the deadlock.

As soon as the House assembled, leader of opposition Narasingha Mishra sought a discussion on the issue relating to former DGP Prakash Mishra and demanded the resignation of chief minister Navin Patnaik for falsely implicating the officer on financial irregularities, which was quashed both by the high court and the Supreme Court.

However, the speaker disallowed the opposition leader from discussing the issue during Question Hour, following which Congress MLAs rushed to the speaker's podium carrying anti-state government banners.

In order to counter the opposition, the treasury bench members also rushed towards the podium protesting the Centre's apathy towards the State.

On the other hand, the ruling party said the Narendra Modi government had ignored the State while announcing Rs1.25 lakh crore package for Bihar.

The speaker adjourned the house till Tomorrow after uproar.
