Odisha Assembly rocked over alleged remarks of Congress leader against Murmu
Bhubaneswar: Opposition BJP MLAs of Odisha Assembly rocked floor of the House today over previous indecent comment of Congress leader Ajoy Kumar against the tribal women and NDA’s presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu.
Amid pandemonium during the Question Hour, Speaker Bikram Keshari Arukha adjourned the House till 11.30 am.
“Yashwant Sinha is a good candidate and Draupadi Murmu is also a decent person. But, she represents a very evil philosophy of India. We should not make her a symbol of the ‘Adivasis’. We have President Ram Nath Kovind, yet the Hathras incident took place. Has he said a word? The condition of Scheduled Castes has become worse,” Ajoy Kumar previously said.
The BJP members condemned such comment after the House began its transactions for the day during its Monsoon Session leading to the temporary adjournment. They also continued the protest outside the House holding banners and placards in their hands.
On the other hand, Congress legislators opposed such a move of the saffron camp.
It is pertinent to mention, the remarks of Ajoy Kumar was recently decried by people from all walks of life across the country.
