Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council witnessed uproarious scenes on the opening day of the Winter session with an agitated opposition creating ruckus leading to the adjournment of the House for the day. Right from the word go, Opposition members raised issues relating to law and order, alleged shortage of fertilisers and seeds and EVM malfunctioning in the recent civic polls in the state and trooped into the Well, derailing the proceedings. SP members sported caps with slogans written on them and displayed banners despite repeated appeals from the Chair to maintain order. Adding to the din, the BSP members kept shouting from their seats. Amid uproar, Chairman Ramesh Yadav adjourned the House for half an hour. When the House re-assembled, similar scenes were witnessed again and it was adjourned till noon. Questions listed for the day could not be taken up in the din.
As the House met at noon, it was action replay. SP and Congress members again trooped into the Well and raised slogans against the government. SP members even hurled paper balls towards the podium. Some BSP members sporting blue caps stood in their seats and shouted slogans. Despite the din, some legislative business was transacted. Soon afterwards, the Chair called it a day sensing the belligerent mood of the opposition members.
