Odisha Assembly could not transact any business on Tuesday due to the repeated ruckus by opposition parties

Bhubaneswar:16/7/19: The Odisha Assembly could not transact any business on Tuesday due to the repeated ruckus by opposition parties–BJP and Congress.

Speaker Surjya Narayan Patra was forced to adjourn the House frequently due to the uproar. As there was no improvement in the situation, the House was adjourned till the afternoon session.

During the Zero Hour, both the opposition parties engaged in a verbal duel. Opposition leader Pradipta Kumar Nayak alleged that the state government is not sending the list of farmers to Centre for inclusion under PM-KISAN scheme and sought a reply.

Subsequently, Congress leader Narasingha Mishra raised the issue of establishment of permanent High Court bench in Bolangir and sought the intervention of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. Santosh Singh Saluja also echoed the similar demand while Tara Prasad Bahinipati expressed concern over the impasse in court due to the demand of the permanent bench. He demanded a ruling from Speaker in this regard.

As the Speaker did not give a ruling and allowed deputy leader of BJP Bishnu Sethi to speak, the Congress MLAs moved to the middle of the House and created a ruckus. Tara Prasad Bahinipati, Ramesh Chandra Jena, Dasarathi Gamang and C S Rajan Ekka staged a dharna near the Speaker’s podium.

Amid the uproar and opposition by Congress and BJP MLAs, the House was first adjourned for five minutes from 12.06 pm, for 20 minutes from 12.11 pm, for 10 minutes from 12.31 pm. Finally, the House was adjourned till 3 pm.
