New Delhi, Mar 17 (UNI) Wearing 'kurtas' with slogans painted on it, members of the Opposition in the Delhi Legislative Assembly today created a pandemonium during the Lt Governor's address on the opening day of the Budget session.

As soon as LG Tejendra Khanna started to address, BJP members rushed to the Well of the House. Two BJP members, Kulwant Rana and Vijay Jolly, hung one of the 'kurtas' near his chair, much to the chargin of ruling Congress legislators. When Congress' Bhisma Sharma tried to remove the kurta, he was pushed by Mr Jolly. Amid pandemoniums, Veer Singh Dhingana (Cong) and Puran Chand Yogi (BJP) were seen pushing each other.

The LG, meanwhile, continued with his address which lasted around 30 minutes.

The BJP members, led by former minister Jagdish Mukhi, continued raising slogans till the House was adjourned till tomorrow.

The slogans painted on otherwise white kurtas included ''We want water, not liquor'', ''Resign if you cannot provide people with adequate water'' and ''Provide general amnesty for sealing.'' BJP's Kanwar Singh Tanwar sat near the Speaker's chair and drank water from a bottle kept on his table to protest the scarcity of water in the National Capital.

Nationalist Congress Party's Ramvir Singh Viduri tried to calm the tempers of the members with folded hands.
