Ruckus in Bihar assembly over naxal ref of CPI-ML leader

Patna, July 03: Protesting against naming their senior leader Ram Naresh Ram as a "naxalite" in a criminal case, agitated CPI-ML MLAs along with their RJD colleagues, today created an uproar in Bihar Assembly, forcing a brief adjournment of the House.

As the House re-assembled for post-lunch session, the CPI-ML members, dissatisfied with the state government's claim that police had approached the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in Ara for deletion of the word "naxalite" prefixed to Ram's name in a murder case in Bhojpur district, trooped into the well of the House and demanded that the state order "unconditional withdrawal" of the case.

They banged the reporters' desk and continued shouting slogans against the Government for falsely implicating the octogenarian leader.

Taking serious exception to the party MLA Amarnath Yadav's behaviour, who kept banging the desk despite repeated requests, Speaker Udai Narain Choudhary got him marshalled out.

But, the din continued unabated with RJD members too entering the well seeking withdrawal of FIR against Ram.

As the opposition members did not relent to his repeated requests to allow the slated business and continued shouting slogans, Choudhary adjourned the House for half-an-hour.
