Bhubaneswar, Nov 20 (LocalWire) The Odisha Assembly was adjourned for the third consecutive day on Tuesday.
Ruckus began as soon as the House was assembled for the day, with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members alleging nexus between Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and Leader of Opposition (LoP) Narasingha Mishra from Congress.
According to sources, BJP MLAs walked to the Well of the House raising slogans, leading to complete pandemonium that compelled Speaker Pradeep Amat to adjourn the Assembly and convene an all-party meeting.
Later, the BJP MLAs continued their protests in front of Mahatma Gandhi statue outside the Assembly.
“In a letter, former Congress MLA Krushna Chandra Sagaria had said how nexus between Patnaik and senior Congress leaders is casting a negative shadow on Odisha,” said BJP legislature party leader KV Singh Deo.
Defending himself, Mishra said, “BJP and Biju Janata Dal (BJD) are like brothers. Now that their chances of winning the upcoming elections are becoming thin, they are making false accusations. Everyone knows Congress has always raised its voice against misdeeds of the state government.”
Meanwhile, BJD spokesperson Puspendra Singhdeo said, “BJD maintains equal distance from both BJP and Congress.”
