MLA rips off shirt, Jharkhand assembly adjourned

September 03, 2012 13:59 IST

The Jharkhand assembly was adjourned twice on Monday after an opposition Member of Legislative Assembly ripped off his shirt inside the House to press for demands.

As soon as the assembly convened at 11 am, Opposition members trooped into the well of the House and raised a din over a plethora of demands.

Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric) MLA Samresh Singh ripped off his shirt, prompting Speaker C P Singh to first adjourn the House for an hour.

When the House assembled again, the Opposition continued with the din, leading to the adjournment till 12.30 pm.

The Opposition's demands included setting up of a commission for displacement, regularising para-teachers and returning land acquired from people of Nagri village on the outskirts of Ranchi.
