While Opposition BJP and Congress members insisted on early solution to the mismanagement at mandis and all paddy procured from farmers soon, ruling BJD members demanded that BJP Deogarh MLA Subash Panigrah tender an apology for making a bid to commit suicide.
As the House met for the day, Opposition members rushed to the Well of the House and shouted slogans against the Government. Soon after, BJD members also trooped to the reporters’ table and demanded an apology from Panigrahi.
The members didn’t relent from their stand despite repeated requests by Speaker Sujya Narayan Patro. Unable to run the proceedings, the Speaker adjourned the House at around 10.32 am till 11.30 am. As no development was marked when the House reassembled at 11.30 am, the Speaker adjourned the House till 12 pm.
