The pre-lunch sitting saw two adjournments as opposition members vociferously raised the issue. Amid uproar, Speaker Hriday Narain Dixit adjourned the House first for 30 minutes and then for the entire Question Hour.
He was instantly supported by BSP legislature party leader Lalji Verma, who said, "Lathicharge was done in the entire state by police and fake cases were lodged against protestors. An MP (SP's Dharmendra Yadav) was injured in the lathicharge."
"There is 'Hitlershahi' in the state as government is resorting to activities which demean democracy," he claimed.
"Our government is committed to the welfare of people and development of the state," he added.
When the speaker did not allow discussion on the matter during the Question Hour, opposition members trooped to the Well raising anti-government slogans.
The Speaker then adjourned the House for 30 minutes and later extended it to the entire Question Hour.
The delegation comprised SP leader Ahmad Hasan, BSP's Verma and a number of MLAs and MLCs from both the parties.
"We strongly condemn the dictatorial attitude of the Yogi Adityanath government. SP workers will not tolerate such action. Not only us, people of the state will give a befitting reply in the Lok Sabha elections," SP MLC Sunil Yadav Sajan told reporters outside the Raj Bhavan here.
