Budget session begins amidst chaos in UP assembly

Lucknow: The Budget session of the Uttar Pradesh assembly today witnessed uproar and uproar as Opposition parties raised slogans against the BJP government and interrupted the effective running of the house.

Speaker Hriday Narayan Dixit expressed displeasure at the behaviour of the opposition benches and said he was saddened that despite assurances for smooth conduct of the house, the Opposition created ruckus.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Khanna was also not happy at the behaviour of the Opposition legislators and stated that the Opposition parties had nothing to do with public welfare and were only wasting time.

As soon as the house met, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress legislators walked into the well of the house and raked up the matter of the killing of five upper caste persons in Rae Bareli. Alleging complete failure of the Yogi Adityanath-led government in maintaining law and order in the state, they also raised banners and posters against the BJP government.
