Bedlam continues for 2nd day over Spcl state tag
The issue of Odisha's demand for special category state status was raised by Congress members as soon as the House assembled for the day. The Assembly also witnessed a similar condition on the previous day when the Opposition continued to create ruckus forcing Speaker to adjourn the House repeatedly.
The opposition members stormed into the well and strongly protested refusal by the speaker, Pradip Kumar Amat, to accept an adjournment notice on the special category state status by the Congress members.
Yesterday, while Congress members were staging demonstration in the well demanding acceptance of their notice for a debate on the same issue, ruling BJD MLAs were on their feet condemning gang-rape of an Odia working woman in Delhi.
