    Opposition leader Chandrakant Kavlekar earlier gave a notice of adjournment motion to discuss a controversial circular issued in June banning government servants from attending public grievance meetings called by MLAs at their residences.

    Kavlekar had requested Speaker Pramod Sawant to consider taking up the issue when the House assembles and before the Question Hour is called.

    When the Speaker refused to accede to Kavlekar's demand, Congress legislators started obstructing the Question Hour.

    "The ruling party is trying to destroy the opposition by not letting its MLAs to redress public grievances," Congress MLA Aleixo Reginaldo said.

    The Congress MLAs repeatedly sought admission of the adjournment motion and stood up in protest after which the Speaker was forced to adjourn the proceedings twice.
