BJP to boycott all party meeting convened by Speaker
This was stated by BJP legislature party leader K V Singhdeo in a statement.
“We doubt a conspiracy has been hatched jointly by ruling BJD and opposition Congress to foil the session. Both the parties do not want discussion on issues affecting people,” Singhdeo said.
The BJP members, who were unable to speak their point of view due to pandemonium, also suspect an understanding between the two parties. Singhdeo himself failed to speak twice yesterday on some issue as the House plunged into turmoil over distress sale of vegetables.
He also failed to speak today as the House was repeatedly adjourned due to ruckus.
While two days were lost due to disturbances created both by the ruling BJD members and Congress MLA over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s alleged anti-Odisha remark at a rally in Uttar Pradesh, as many days including today had been spoiled due to uproar in House over a farmer suicide allegedly due to state government’s inaction.
Singhdeo said the Congress leaders are rushing to the Well over stray matters and create disturbance in the House so that none can speak his mind in the floor of the assembly.
“Speaker also adjourns the House without taking measure to resolve the matter,” the BJP leader said.
Noting that the BJP was trying to raise issues like outbreak of jaundice in Cuttack, poll violence during panchayat elections, farmers issues and others, Singhdeo said” “We have decided not to attend the all-party meeting being convened by the Speaker.”
He said the happenings for last two days indicated that both the BJD and the Congress have hatched a conspiracy not to conduct any discussion in the assembly.
