"Siddiqui had also moved an adjournment motion to suspend all other work and take up matters such as rising crime against women in the state."
Lucknow, June 19 - The budget session of the Uttar Pradesh assembly began on a stormy note Thursday with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislators staging a sit-in inside the house.

Protesting against the failing law and order situation in the state, BJP MLAs held a noisy dharna near the speaker's chair following which the house was adjourned.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislators in the upper house also shouted slogans and demanded the resignation of the Akhilesh Yadav government for failing to pay arrears to cane growers, the poor law and order situation and grim power scenario.

Led by Leader of Opposition Naseemuddin Siddiqui, BSP legislators later protested outside the house, wearing blue caps and carrying placards seeking the dismissal of the Samajwadi Party government.

Siddiqui had also moved an adjournment motion to suspend all other work and take up matters such as rising crime against women in the state.

The chair, however, did not approve this and the house plunged into bedlam. Rashtriya Lok Dal MLAs also raised slogans against the government and raised the matter of pending arrears of sugarcane growers.
