Uttar Pradesh: SP-BSP members create ruckus, throw paper planes, paper balls in the Vidhan Sabha

Member's of the SP held banners likening the CBI to a caged parrot and raised slogans as Governor Ram Naik addressed a joint session of Uttar Pradesh Legislature in Lucknow on Tuesday

Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party MLAs today protested against the state government in the state assembly today by throwing paper planes and paper balls towards the governor Ram Naik.

They also held banners likening the CBI to a caged parrot and raised slogans as Governor Ram Naik addressed a joint session of Uttar Pradesh Legislature in Lucknow on Tuesday.

However, this is not the first time SP and BSP members have resorted to this sort of unschooled and trifling behaviour to stall the UP assembly proceedings. Last year too, the opposition had resorted to throwing paper planes, paper balls and balloons at Governor Ram Naik, agitating against Yogi government over encounters of dreaded criminals.

The Uttar Pradesh Police has been conducting encounters against dreaded criminals at a remarkable frequency since Yogi Adityanath took over as the Chief Minister of the state. Thus far, over 1,100 encounters have been conducted and 38 criminals have been eliminated. Hundreds of others have been arrested.

Although the public has been supportive of the Chief Minister’s drive to root out lawlessness from the society, oppositions like SP and BSP were troubled with the prompt actions taken by the UP police and thought it prudent enough to have recourse to protests in the Assembly, holding placards with slogans such as “Nirdoshon ki farzi encounter band karo (stop fake encounters of innocents)” and “Kansganj ke sampradayik hinsa mein nirdosh logon pe zulm bandh karo (stop harassing innocents in Kansganj)”.

Previously also, the Samajwadi party has initiated this kind of ludicrous act. In May 2017, the Budget session of the Uttar Pradesh Legislature had begun on a turbulent note as the opposition parties created a ruckus during Governor Ram Naik’s address to the House. The SP, BSP members were seen throwing papers at the Governor’s face as he tried to complete his address.

In 2014, during the Uttar Pradesh assembly session, RJD legislators, in what could be called the most uncultured act, took off their shirts protesting against the incumbent government.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led state government will present the budget for the year 2019-20 on February 7. Subsequently, the discussion on Budget will take place on four days beginning from February 12. On February 6, February 7 the house will discuss Governer’s address. The Session would discuss and put to vote from February 18 -22.
