Patna, Feb. 18: The BJP today disrupted the proceedings of the pre-lunch sitting of the Assembly protesting against the alleged poor law and order situation in the state.
The party MLAs trooped into the well of the House soon after the proceedings began, demanding discussions on the “adjournment motion” notice served by them first. Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary had to adjourn the proceedings within 15 minutes.
The Speaker turned down the BJP’s request, stressing that the chair goes by the rule, which states that the question hour should not be disturbed. But Leader of the Opposition Nand Kishore Yadav demanded that the Speaker must first accept the adjournment motion on the failing law and order situation of the state, prompting adjournment of the House till 12.30pm. When the proceedings resumed, the House plunged into disorder after the Speaker rejected the BJP’s adjournment motion. Yadav told reporters his party had no other option. “We wanted special debates on the law and order condition and the situation faced by farmers. But the government has not agreed to hold these debates,” said Yadav.
