Bihar Assembly rocked by protest by all political parties

Patna:  Bihar Assembly witnessed ruckus for the second consecutive day today with members of all major parties trooping into the well on separate issues forcing adjournment of the House till recess.

Right from the word go, the House saw members of JD(U), RJD, Congress and BJP rushing to the well to protest on different issues.

Ruling JD(U), RJD and Congress members were protesting BJP leader O P Dhankar’s controversial remarks “Bihari brides for Haryana boys”.

Opposition BJP MLAs were in the well demanding CBI probe into alleged medicines scam during the tenure of former Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The alleged scam refers to purchase of medicines worth Rs 100 crore from six blacklisted companies and supplied to hospitals in January this year when Health portfolio was with former Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after severing ties with BJP.

Holding placards, the members were shouting slogans.

Except for ministers and leader of opposition Nand Kishore Yadav and a few dissident JD(U) MLAs, all other legislators were seen in the well.

When persuasions failed, Speaker Udai Narayan Choudhary adjourned the House till 2 pm.
