Today’s budget session of the Assam assembly has been adjourned by the Speaker till 3 pm due to a ruckus over the COVID-19 vaccination.

The session has witnessed a storming start as opposition members expressed displeasure over the vaccination drive in Assam. A heated debate has started between the ruling and opposition members when Health Minister Keshav Mahanta replied to a question by Congress MLA Debabrata Saikia over the COVID vaccinations in the state.

Minister Mahanta strongly rebutted the opposition's charge when another Congress MLA Bharat Narah interrupted him. He alleged that several organizations created confusion over the COVID vaccination drive. He was joined by Water Resource Minister Pijush Hazarika who also alleged that Congress and some other organizations spread misconceptions over the vaccination programme. Opposing him, Congress MLA Wazed Ali Chaudhury alleged that the minister unnecessarily dragged the name of a political party and demanded a half an hour discussion on the topic which led to a din. Speaker Biswajit Daimary adjourned the session till 3 pm today.
