Singh has to adjourn the house for an hour after the MLA’s behavior. The MLA Samresh Singh after moving close to the CM spoke to him and then ripped off his shirt.

The opposition wanted the Bharatiya Janata Party- led government to fix on a stand on the displacement issue in the state. They came close to the Speaker’s chair demanding the government to take an appropriate decision on the issue.
