Winter session of Odisha Assembly adjourned sine die

Bhubaneswar: The winter session of the Odisha Assembly was on Thursday adjourned sine-die, 13 days ahead of the schedule.

Speaker Pradip Kumar Amat adjourned the session for an indefinite period.

The House sat for only 12 days against 26 scheduled working days. The session, which commenced on November 28, was scheduled to conclude on December 30.

As many as five bills were passed during the winter session of the Assembly.

In this session, the proceedings of the House were mostly disrupted with the opposition Congress and BJP creating a ruckus over farmers’ issues, while the ruling BJD members raised the issue over the rise in the minimum support price (MSP) of paddy.

However, a resolution was passed unanimously in the House to put pressure on the Centre to form a Tribunal to resolve the Mahanadi river dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh.
