Protest disrupts House

Patna, July 24: The Assembly had to be adjourned today after the BJP raised the issue of increase in atrocities against women in the state.

During the zero hour, Nand Kishore Yadav read out the dates of around 50 incidents related to crimes against women and declared that the state administration had lost its grip over crime. Soon after, BJP MLAs rushed into the Well of the House shouting slogans against the government. The proceedings of the House were drowned amid noise and the Speaker had to adjourn the House.

During the question hour, urban development minister Samrat Choudhary assured the House that three defunct electronic cremation centres located near Ganga would be restored during the current financial year.

In reply to another question related to the encroachment of public places, the minister said he had asked Patna Municipal Corporation to rid the residential areas around Jamal Road post office and Rotary Club on Beer Chand Patel Marg free of encroachment by anti-social elements.

In response to a question by Prem Kumar of the BJP, food and consumer affairs minister Shyam Rajak admitted that consumer forums were functional in only 15 of 38 districts.
