Bhubaneswar, Aug 20 (UNI) The Left wing trade unions-sponsored 24-hour nationwide strike to protest the Union government's 'anti-people' economic policies and the Indo-US Nuke deal had an echo in the Orissa Assembly today.
CPI member N Narayan Reddy, CPI(M) member Laxman Munda and Independent member Sambhunath Naik with posters supporting the bandh entered the well of the House during question ours and shouted slogans against the Union government.
The Marshal managed to snatch a poster from CPI(M) member Laxman Munda, but CPI member Narayan Reddy refused to give away the posters.
The three members sat on a dharna for some time inside the well and later staged a walkout after making a few rounds around the reporters' table.
