Patna : Bihar legislative assembly was adjourned till lunch break on March 16, 2018, due to uproar by theĀ  RJD members over a media report claiming that CBI has lodged an FIR against party chief Lalu Prasad in land for hotel scam notwithstanding agency’s legal wing opinion that there was no evidence against him. The RJD members were later joined in slogan shouting by other opposition parties.

RJD legislators led by leader of opposition Tejaswi Yadav were on their feet, many of them waving copies of the report carried by a leading English daily, as soon as Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary took the Chair to start the day’s proceedings. The RJD members shouted slogans alleging that the report proved that Lalu Prasad was being framed in corruption cases as part of a political conspiracy.
The Speaker asked the opposition members to take their seat and that they may raise the issue during the zero hour. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shravan Kumar also said that the government was ready to respond to whatever questions the opposition had if the latter did not obstruct the proceedings. As the RJD members continued their protest, Speaker Chaudhary adjourned the proceedings till 2 pm.
