Bhubaneswar: In a strong move, Speaker Niranjan Pujari rejected two adjournment motions moved separately by the BJP and the Congress in the state Assembly today.

The BJP moved a notice for adjournment over the issue of power crisis in the state highlighting the state government’s failure in ensuring electricity for 24 hours. Similarly, the Congress moved a notice for an adjournment motion in the House over mining scam. However, the Speaker rejected both the notices.

Besides, farmers' issue was also raised in House. Highlighting various problems faced by farmers, BJD MLA Nrusingha Sahu said even though the Shakti Sugar Mill in Dhenkanal is running profitably, farmers are being being exploited there. He also appraised Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy that farmers are not getting subsidy at proper time. Besides, the MLA recommended for provision of insurance coverage to the farmers.
