Soon after the House assembled for the Winter Session at 11 am, unruly members of both the ruling BJD and Opposition parties created obstructions in the proceedings of the House over issues.
Initially, Speaker Bikram kesahri Arukha adjourned the House for 30 minutes amid ruckus over the issue. Further chaos prevailed when the House reassembled later forcing the Speaker to adjourn the House till 4 pm.
Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has given an Adjournment Motion on Gop Zilla Parishad Member Dharmendra Sahoo suicide case for discussion in the State Assembly. It is unlikely to be discussed today as the House has been adjourned till 4 pm.
The inaugural day of the winter session started with obituary references on the passing away of former Minister and Members. As the Hose met, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik brought an obituary motion in the names of former Minister Bijay Ranjan Singh Bariha, former Opposition Deputy Leader Bishnu Sethi, former Minister Golak Bihari Naik and three former Members, Kapil Narayan Tiwari, Gopa Narayan Das and Adikanda Seith, of the House, who passed away in recent months.
