As soon as the House re-convened to take up agendas during post-lunch session, the BJP members trooped in the well demanding debate on deteriorating law and order situation and raised slogans against the state government for its alleged failure to contain crime.

However, better sense prevailed soon after at the behest of Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary with the Leader of Opposition Nandkishore Yadav directing BJP members to occupy their seats to take up the Constitution (121st Amendment) Bill, 2014 for ratification.

The Finance Minister and Minister In-Charge of General Administration Department Bijendra Prasad Yadav introduced the bill and read out its provisions before Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary put the bill for ratification by members who endorsed it by voice vote.

The two houses of Parliament passed the Constitution (121st Amendment) Bill, 2014, earlier this year to facilitate equal participation of the judiciary and executive in appointment of judges of the Supreme Court and high courts.

Immediately after ratification of the constitution bill, the Leader of Opposition Nandkishore Yadav urged the Speaker to allow discussion on law and order situation on the ground that the House has no other business to take up in the day.

However, Chaudhary ignored the BJP leader's request and adjourned the house till tomorrow.

Earlier in the day, the BJP members had created ruckus in the house claiming that the law and order situation has deteriorated in Bihar ever since the ruling JD(U) joined hands with the RJD and demanded a special debate on the issue by suspending all other business.

After not finding favour with the Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary, the BJP members trooped into the well of the house and raised slogans against the state government.

Amid the din, the Speaker adjourned the house first till noon, but the BJP members once again shouted slogans as the house resumed at noon prompting the Speaker to adjourn it for lunch.
