Bihar assembly adjourned due to pandemonium over law and order situation

Agency News

Patna, Nov 27 : The pre-lunch session of Bihar Assembly was adjourned ahead of its scheduled time today when RJD, Congress and CPI (ML) members created ruckus in the house over deteriorating law and order situation in the state.

As soon as the House assembled for the day, RJD member Lalit Yadav demanded acceptance of his adjournment motion on law and order situation paving way for discussion on it in the house.

In the meantime, Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary announced commencement of the question hour amid noisy scenes created by RJD, Congress and CPI (ML) members over rising crime graph.

Rural Development Minister Shravan Kumar started giving replies to the questions related to his department but these could not be clearly heard due to pandemonium in the house.

Later, RJD, Congress and CPI (ML) members trooped into the well of house by raising anti-government slogans and carrying placards.

Speaker Mr Chaudhary requested agitating members to restore normalcy and allow the house to take up question hour notices.

When his repeated appeals failed to move the opposition members, he adjourned the house till lunch recess.

Later, rural development minister Mr Kumar told newspersons outside the assembly that question hour was very important but the opposition members instead of raising the people's issues were flowing their hard-earned money into water.

"Government is fully prepared to reply to the questions of opposition members in the house but they have no concern for the people's issues", he remarked.

He said, people who had elected them (opposition members) to raise their issues in the house should understand how these people had no interest in their matters.

The RJD members vociferously raised issues of deteriorating law and order situation and steep hike in the price of onions in the state outside the state assembly.

RJD member Shivchandra Ram was also wearing a garland of onions to register his protest against the hike in price of onions. (UNI)
