Moments after the home reconvened for the day at 10.30 am, leader of opposition Narasingha Mishra expressed concern over the sexual attacks on the minors in Nilagiri and Soro spaces of Balasore district, both of which got here to gentle on Sunday.

He requested the speaker to suspend the query hour and allow dialogue on the deteriorating law and order scenario within the state. Narasingha sought a answer from chief minister Naveen Patnaik as minister in-charge of the house division on the factor.

When the speaker did not allow, Congress individuals raised anti-Naveen slogans and jumped into the neatly of the home. Some of the MLAs tried to climb up the speaker's podium and take hold of his microphone. Amat adjourned the home first till 11.30 pm. When the home reconvened for zero hour at 11.30 pm, the Congress individuals continued pressing for his or her call for for a dialogue and a response from the executive minister. On failing to restore order, the speaker adjourned the home till 3pm.


Speaking to reporters outdoor the assembly, Narasingha said the government has been detached to the serious factor of sexual assault on minors. "What can be more important for the government than curbing such heinous crimes? Unfortunately, the chief minister maintains a stoic silence on the issue," Narasingha said.


Echoing identical views, BJP MLA Rabi Naik said the same reflects the Naveen executive's angle against women. "They talk of honour for women and mothers. Is this honour?," he wondered.


BJD spokesperson and MLA Samir Ranjan Dash said the concern of the opposition is only a publicity stunt. "The government has taken the crimes seriously and will ensure the culprits get the harshest of punishments according to law. But the opposition is doing precious little by not allowing the house to run," Dash said.
