Opposition continues to create ruckus in State Assembly




 With more suicide cases of farmers pouring in from across the state, opposition Congress and BJP members today continued to create ruckus in the Assembly leading to adjournment of the House for the fourth consecutive day.

As the House assembled for the question hour, Congress legislators rushed to the Well and demanded discussion on the farmers' suicide cases through an adjournment motion.

They shouted anti-government slogans as the  Congress' notice was not accepted by the Speaker.

Unable to run the House amidst the din, Speaker Niranjan Pujari adjourned it for an hour till 11.30.

However, when the House reassembled, Congress and BJP members created pandemonium again, forcing Pujari to adjourn the House till 12.50 PM and again till 3 PM.

Both Congress and BJP have been demanding constitution of a House Committee to probe the farmers suicide cases. They alleged that the enquiry by district collectors into farmers' suicide cases were not impartial.

In all the incidents, the administration claimed that the farmers committed suicide not due to agriculture related matter, but for other reasons.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
