The Opposition RJD, BSP and the Left parties walked out of the Bihar Assembly to protest rejection of their notice of adjournment motion over presence of "sleazy" content on the official website of the state government.


Noisy scenes were witnessed in the House when Speaker Uday Narain Chaudhary after reading out the notice given by RJD's Shyam Rajak and others rejected it, saying it was not in order.


In the notice, Rajak had charged that the video diary section of the official website of the Bihar government to which he logged on Wednesday, had obscene video clippings .


The notice said the video diary section of the official website linked to a private site had some films on Bihar's progress, but also contained "sleazy clippings".


As soon as the Speaker ruled that the notice was rejected Rajak, deputy leader of RJD in the House Shakeel Ahmed Khan and others were seen engaged in heated arguments with the chair.


In the continuing din, deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi described it as the handiwork of hackers, who linked the official website of the government to the private site.


The government has not done anything to bring the state into disrepute. Similar elements had posted some obscene photographs of former premier Indira Gandhi [Images] on the Internet some time ago. Our computer programmers delinked the government website from the private website, he said.
