Bhubaneswar, Mar 31: The Question Hour of the state Assembly could not be held today due to Opposition uproar. The Speaker Surjya Narayan Patro had to adjourn the proceedings till 11.30 am.
As soon as the house met today, Congress MLAs trooped into the Well of the House opposing the proposed power tariff hike, to be effective from April 4. On the other hand, BJP legislators raised uproar protesting against putting the logo of Biju Pucca Ghar Yojana in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.
Thus the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) is trying to hijack the Central schemes and taking the credit for these schemes, said BJP leaders. Finding it difficult to run the House amidst the din, the Speaker adjourned the proceedings till 11.30 am.
