Bhubaneswar: Pandemonium by the opposition BJP and Congress disrupted proceedings in the Odisha Assembly for the 5th consecutive day today, demanding formation of a House committee to probe into multiple farmers’ suicide incidents in the state.
While Members of opposition demanded the Speaker for constituting a House Committee to probe into the issue, the ruling party denied and advocated that probe into the cases had already been done by respected district administration.
“We can’t understand why the government is not considering our suggestion for a House Committee which can bring the exact reason behind the loss of valuable lives. Once the report is tabled, everything will be clear on the deaths”, said BJP member Pradeep Purohit.
However, Congress and BJP members reiterated demand for government response to increasing cases of farmers committing suicide.
