The Bihar legislative Assembly witnessed turmoil in the post-lunch session today with opposition BJP members pressing for resolution against some ruling coalition MLAs for creating unruly scenes yesterday. The situation prompted Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary to adjourn the House for the day after 20-minute business during which three bills were passed amid the ruckus. As soon as the House assembled for the post-lunch session to take up legislative business, Leader of Opposition Prem Kumar stood and urged the Speaker to take up a resolution condemning unruly scenes by some members of the Treasury bench, but Chaudhary was unmoved saying the matter has been resolved at an party meeting earlier in the day and pleaded with the Opposition to allow the House to function. But, Kumar stood his ground and soon the BJP members trooped into the Well raising slogans against the grand alliance government and demanded that a resolution be adopted to condemn the unruly scenes created by Treasury members yesterday. Amid the din, the Speaker asked Transport minister Chandrika Rai to introduce the Bihar Motor Vehicle Taxation (Amendment) Bill, 2016 which was passed subsequently by a voice vote. Rural Development minister Shrawan Kumar later introduced two bills -- the Aryabhatt Knowledge University (Amendment) Bill, 2016 and Bihar State University (Amendment) Bill, 2016, which too were passed by voice vote. Soon after this the Speaker adjourned the House for the day after his repeated pleas to agitating BJP members went unheeded.
