Patna, Nov 25 (GCCurrentAffairs) The pre-lunch session of Bihar Assembly was adjourned only after 11 minutes today when Congress and RJD workers created ruckus in the house over police baton charge on Congress workers during their ‘Jan Vedana’ march protesting against economic slowdown, unemployment and other issues in the state capital yesterday.
As soon as the House assembled for the day, Congress members started demanding acceptance of their adjournment motion on lathi charge against party leaders and workers in paving way for a discussion on it.
On it, speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary said that let the house be in the order first and contended that it was not the proper time to raise the issue of lathi charge as the house was to take up question hour notices.
Later, Congress members along with RJD members trooped into the well of house demanding discussion and government`s reply on the issue.
The Speaker said that he would look into the adjournment motion at the right time and would take a decision on it.
State parliamentary affairs minister Shravan Kumar said that the government was ready to hold discussion on the issue but the government would give its reply only if the matter was raised as per prescribed norms. He also told agitating members to resume their seats.
Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Prasad Yadav said, it was the Opposition`s duty to protest and tell the government about its shortcomings and faults.
“Outside the house, there is lathi charge on opposition members and inside the house, government is not allowing them to speak out,” Mr Yadav remarked.
The Leader of opposition while referring to deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi’s tweet on ‘good thing happening in the darkness of night’ said good work had taken place even in Bihar during night hours.
On it, Speaker said it was not proper to drag an issue related to Maharashtra to the state assembly.
Later, speaker adjourned the assembly at 11.11 a.m. till lunch recess when the normalcy could not return to the house despite his repeated appeals to Congress and RJD members
