The Uttar Pradesh assembly on Monday witnessed pandemonium on the first day of session over law and order situation in the state.
Governor Ram Naik's speech in the joint assembly was disrupted by opposition parties as they raised banners and posters and came to the well of the house. Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party leaders jointly led the mayhem in the house.
Also, in a bizarre incident, martials were seen fielding paper balls thrown at the Governor.
According to reports, 'whistles and catcalls' were blown by protesting MLAs. This the first assembly session of Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
