Budget Session: Demand of grants for six departments passed without debate as BJP continues to disrupt Assembly on recruitment policy

Ranchi: A debate on demand for grants of the six departments could not take place as the Jharkhand assembly did not function properly after the lunch break when the debate was scheduled. 

The ruckus started after the BJP legislators wearing saffron T-shirts carrying the message “1932 Ka Kya Hua” went in the well demanding reply of Chief Minister Hemant Soren on the issue of recruitment policy and ruling party legislators raising objection to it.

Congress MLA Pradeep Yadav requested Speaker Rabindra Nath Mahto to restrain the BJP legislators from doing so. He asked the speaker whether he would allow any legislator to come in underwear. On which, the speaker asked the BJP MLAs to maintain the decorum of the house. But the BJP MLAs did not listen to the speaker. 

They started banging the reporters’ table. Amid uproar, the speaker adjourned the proceedings till 3 pm. When the proceedings resumed at 3pm, the ruling party opposed the BJP’s T-shirts carrying slogans and said it was against the decorum of the house.
