Odisha assembly postpones sign shed off schedule

Bhubaneshwar: The Odisha Legislative Assembly adjourned the sign dine on Thursday, 17 days ahead of its scheduled schedule. Speaker SN Patro adjourned the winter session of the assembly which was to end on 19 December.
Prior to the adjournment, the CV Raman Global University Bill was passed in the House today.
The current session of the Assembly witnessed fruitful discussions on several issues along with the uproar. Opposition parties tried to spread the ruling on a range of issues, including farmers’ protests in paddy procurement, death of woman PEO Smaratani Biswal, rape and suicide of a girl in Jagatsinghpur and land grab against BJD MLA Pradeep Maharathi.
Leader of the opposition, Pradipta Naik, on the other hand, stated that two of their party MLAs wanted to question why the Assembly was being adjourned sine die. However, we staged a walkout after our members were not allowed to speak in the House by Speaker.
“The government did not have any business and was not keen to take up the issues raised by the opposition. As the ruling party has majority in the House, they adjourned the Assembly by bringing and passing a motion,” said Congress MLA Narasingha Mishra.
Responding to the allegations of the Opposition, Information and Public Relations Department Minister Raghunandan Das said, “The allegations of opposition parties are not based on facts. The Assembly functioned smoothly and was quite fruitful. As there was no business before the House, it was adjourned as per the existing provisions,” said Das.
