Pandemonium broke out in the Odisha Assembly

Bhubaneswar15/7/19:: Pandemonium broke out in the Odisha Assembly today with the oppositions targetting the government over alleged deteriorating law and order situation in the state.

The opposition created ruckus over triple murder at Patnaikia Square near Sakhigopal in Puri district, firing at a businessman in Kendrapara and rising murder and rape cases in the state. Amid the heavy noise, the morning session in the House was called off.

As the session began at 10.30 am, opposition leader Pradipta Kumar Nayak sought to raise the issue of law and order situation. However, Speaker Surjya Narayan Patra began the question hour without giving Nayak a chance to speak on the issue.

Later, following a protest by BJP MLAs the Speaker allowed Nayak to speak on the issue. Nayak after raising the issue sought a reply from Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

Nayak said the law and order situation across the state has deteriorated. “Criminals are committing crimes without fear while there is no police action. The police are working as political poppet,” he said.

As the Speaker again began the question-answer session, the BJP MLAs created ruckus in the middle of the house. Opposition chief whip Mohan Charan Majhi and MLAs Shankar Oram, Sanatan Bijuli, Mukesh Mahaling, among others demanded a reply from the Chief Minister on the issue.

The BJP MLAs demanded to cancel the question-answer session and sought discussion on the law and order issue. As uproar prevailed in the House, Speaker first adjourned the proceedings for 10 minutes and subsequently till 11.30 am.
