Soon after the Assembly sitting began, opposition members pressed the chair to accept their adjournment motion on the July 16 mid-day meal tragedy in a Saran district school in which 23 children died.

The opposition members, mostly BJP legislators, disrupted the proceedings and trooped into the well. Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary repeatedly requested the members to resume their seats and place the issue after the question hour. But opposition members remained adamant and demanded their adjournment motion moved by Leader of Opposition Nand Kishore Yadav be taken up immediately.

The members shouted slogans with placards in their hands and dubbed the government insensitive.

The Monsoon session of the Bihar Assembly is expected to be stormy as the opposition parties are determined to corner the state government on various issues such as Bodh Gaya serial blasts and mid-day meal tragedy in Saran district.
