Normalcy eludes House for 9th day; LoP writes to Speaker

Bhubaneswar: Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra on Thursday wrote a letter to Odisha Assembly Speaker Niranjan Pujari urging him to restore normalcy in the House.

Normalcy eluded the House for the ninth successive day today. As soon as the members assembled for the business of the day and before the Question Hour began, Opposition members created a ruckus demanding refund of deposits to investors affected by the chit-fund scam and dismissal of Justice MM Das.

Unable to run the House, the Speaker adjourned the House till 3 pm. Later, the demand of Urban Development was discussed and passed in the House after three adjournments. During the discussion of the demand of the Urban Development department, Opposition members staged a walkout.

Demand of other departments which were not passed in House was approved through guillotine. The House was adjourned till 10.30 am tomorrow.
