By Bizodisha Bureau, Bhubaneswar, October 6, 2020: The Monsoon Session of Odisha State Assembly was on Tuesday adjourned sine die a day before schedule.

After paying tributes to late BJD MLA Pradeep Maharathy, who passed away during the session, the Speaker S N Patro adjourned the Assembly sine die.

The Session, which began on September 29 adhering to the Covid guidelines, saw the passage of seven bills.

The concluding day saw five bills vetted by the House. The bills were the Odisha Universities (Amendment) Bill, the Odisha Municipal Laws (amendment) Bill, 2020, the Industrial Disputes (Odisha amendment) Bill, 2020, the Odisha Goods and Services Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2020 and Odisha Advocates’ Welfare Fund (Amendment) Bill 2020.

Besides, three adjournment motions were moved for debate in the House during the session. Unstarred questions and zero hour were part of the House proceedings, while there was no question hour during the session.

Opposition BJP did not participate in the business of the House throughout the day. Alleging that the State government was ignoring the Opposition and the Speaker doing partiality, BJP and Congress members created ruckus in the House.

BJP legislators shouted slogans demanding the Speaker to accept an adjournment motion on PM Kisan Yojana. They also wanted a discussion on mining scam in the State. The BJP members then walked out of the Assembly and went to meet Governor Ganeshi Lal to apprise him about the issues.
