Lucknow: Uproarious scenes marred the opening day of Budget session of Uttar Pradesh legislature as slogan-shouting opposition lawmakers barring those from BJP disrupted Governor Ram Naik's address to the joint sitting of the two Houses on Friday.
The BSP led the opposition onslaught, carrying posters, raising anti-government slogans and shouting 'Governor go back'. Congress members too displayed banners in the Well. Some of them donned caps having picture of their leader Rahul Gandhi.
Amid the din, Naik cut short his address, which was laid on the table. BJP members, however, did not leave their seats during the Governor's address.
As soon as the Governor rose to start the address, BSP members trooped into the Well shouting 'rajyapal wapas jao (governor go back)'. They were soon joined by members from Congress and Rashtriya Lok Dal who displayed posters carrying anti-government slogans.
The noise drowned the Governor's address in which he spelt out the policies, programmes and achievements of Akhilesh Yadav government and forced him to stop midway.
