Uproar in Assam Assembly

An uproar in the Assam Legislative Assembly Budget session has forced Assam Governor Ajoy Kumar Singh to cut short his address opening the session at 9 in the morning on Monday. As the Governor started reading out his speech the Opposition legislators stood up and alleged the Governor's failure on all fronts. The Opposition members were taking banners and festoons in their hands to raise many demands. The situation took an acrimonious turn when the ruling and opposition members mired in trading of charges and counter charges. Caught in the din, the Governor read out the last line of his speech to conclude it. This session is significant in view of the Beltola clash, price rise and some anomalies in the recent panchayat polls. Our Assamtimes Team in Guwahati will update the Assembly proceedings hour by hour for out esteemed visitors.
