Angry Opp stages walk out

 The Opposition walked out of the Assam Assembly on Saturday after Speaker refused to allow the House to discuss the recent shocking incident in Chirang where NDFB-S militants killed a school girl.

The House witnessed an uproar when the Opposition demanded discussion on the Chirang incident along with the Assam-Nagaland flare up.

Parliamentary Minister Nilamani Sen Deka said the two issues could not be discussed as per law for they were sub-judice with Opposition AGP's Jagadish Bhuyan and Zoii Nath Sarma filing a PIL in the Gauhati High Court on 25 August on the incident of police firing at Rangajan in Golaghat district on 19 and 20 August.

The opposition MLAs started shouting at the chair for not being allowed to discuss the issues. The entire Opposition comprising 44 MLAs from AIUDF, AGP, BJP and BPF staged a walkout.
