Bhubaneswar, Nov 16 (LocalWire) Demanding CBI probe into the Panchayat Extension Officer (PEO) Smitarani Biswal death, BJP MLAs on Saturday staged a dharna in front of the Gandhi statue in the premises of Odisha Assembly.
The issue continued to rock the Assembly for the third consecutive day today as they staged a walkout from the House bearing black badges alleging that the Speaker Surjya Narayan Patro was biased over the matter and not allowing them to raise any issue.
Soon after the Assembly began, they raised slogans by standing in their respective seats even as the Speaker repeatedly requesting them not to do so and participate in the Question Hour.
The House is now in session in the absence of the BJP MLAs.
The saffron party members had also protested in the Assembly on Friday by covering their mouth with black cloth.
