The Speaker adjourned the house twice amidst opposition uproar over the implementation of the recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission, in the Tripura assembly on Wednesday.
At the begining of the house, the leader of the opposition Ratan Lal Nath (Congress) raised the issue demanding immediate implementation of the recommendations of the central pay commission for the state government employees.
As Speaker Ramendra Nath said this matter was not scheduled for discussion and he cannot allow a discussion on it, the opposition bench started shouting and thumping desks, prompting the Speaker to adjourn the House for ten minutes.
When the House reassembled at about 11:30 am, the opposition bench again started shouting on the same issue and at one point of time some Congress members rushed to the well and the watch and ward staff threw a cordon. The Speaker then adjourned the house again for half an hour.
When the house re-assembled at 12:00 pm the issue was not raised again.
