GUWAHATI, Jan 28: The budget session of the Assam assembly today began on a stormy note, with the Opposition, including the AGP, disrupting proceedings protesting the move to amend the citizenship law.
Barely two minutes into the Governor�s speech, the combined Opposition members were on their feet displaying placards and shouting slogans against the �anti-constitutional� moves of the government which are �threatening the identity of the indigenous people.�
While the AGP members were on their feet, MLAs of the Congress and AIUDF trooped into the well and created a pandemonium near the Speaker�s chair. The Opposition alleged that the Governor�s speech was full of �lies� and the claims of peace and harmony in the state �did not depict the actual situation on ground.�
Governor Prof Jagdish Mukhi was forced to cut short his speech. Unable to control the situation, Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami adjourned the house for a 40-minute break.
