The Haryana assembly wason Tuesdayadjourned following a walk-out by the opposition Indian National Lok Dal(INLD) over the Hooda government's Special Economic Zone (SEZ) deal with Reliance and the vociferous protest by the party over the controversial agrofed issue.

The INLD members staged a walkout during the question hour when Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was speaking about the ambitious SEZ to be developed by Reliance in Gurgaon and Jhajjar districts in the state.

Mr Hooda was seeking to allay the apprehensions of the concerned members over the SEZ deal when the INLD members, led by Dr Sushil Kumar Indora, rose up and started shouting slogans against the chief minister and his government for the controversial deal.

They alleged that Mr Hooda was misleading the house by making false statement on the floor of the assembly with regard to the SEZ agreement. Mr Hooda had stated that the state would benefit to the tune of Rs 10,000 crore by the SEZ.
