Odisha Assembly adjourned sine die 20 days ahead of schedule

Odisha: Surjya Narayana Patro, the speaker of the Odisha Assembly, adjourned the assembly sine die on Friday, 20 days ahead of schedule, due to a disruption in the Assembly over the murder of Mamita Meher.

The winter session, which began on December 1 and ended on December 31, was supposed to go until the end of the year.  Pramilla Mallick, the government's chief whip, proposed a sine die adjournment of the session. Following that, BJP MLAs organised a demonstration beside the Mahatma Gandhi statue in the Assembly grounds, criticising the BJD government for sheltering State Home Minister Dibyashankar Mishra, who is accused of being implicated in the murder case.

Members of the BJYM, the BJP's youth wing, gheraoed the Odisha Assembly on Thursday, demanding the removal of Minister of State for Home Affairs DibyaShankar Mishra from the State Cabinet over his alleged involvement in the Mamita Meher murder case, prompting police to use lathi charge.

JP Nadda, the National President of the BJP, formed a 3-member panel on Oct 26 to probe the kidnapping and alleged assassination of Meher in the state's Kalahandi Parliamentary seat. Sunita Duggal, a Lok Sabha member, BJP Women Wing President Vanathi Srinivasan, and MLA Rupra Mitra were among the members of the committee.
