RJD alleges law and order breakdown in BIhar
New Delhi, Dec 05 (UNI) Members of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) today alleged breakdown of law and order in Bihar and created noisy scenes in the Lok Sabha over the issue, forcing its adjournment during pre-lunch period.
The issue was raised by Devendra Prasad Yadav who alleged that there was a serious law and order situation in Bihar (ruled by Janata Dal(United) and the BJP) and the Centre should ask the state to send a report.
He cited a few instances, including the killing of an autorickshaw puller and a Professor of Patna University, to reinforce his point that the centre should intervene to set things on the law and order front.
However, Speaker Somnath Chatterjee restrained him from making any further allegation.
"I will not allow state matters to be raised on the floor," the Chair told Mr Yadav, sparking of protests from the RJD memebers who were on their feet and creating noisy scenes.
Senior RJD member Ram Kripal Singh rushed to the front row of the treasury benches and was seen arguing with the Speaker. But nothing could be heard in the din created by his own colleagues.
When the protest from the RJD members persisted, Mr Chatterjee adjourned the house till 1400 hours at 1250 hours, 40 minutes ahead of the lunch break.
