Bhubaneswar, May 17: A day after Odisha Chief Minister veen Patik blamed the opposition for stalling the assembly proceedings, the Congress and BJP on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on the ruling Biju Jata Dal (BJD) for “choking the voice of opposition”. The state government has committed “murder of democracy in broad daylight,” they said. Notably, the budget session of the Odisha assembly was on Monday adjourned sine die, four days ahead of the schedule. The second phase of the session was almost washed out following disruptions on various issues, including chit fund scam. “It is the duty of the state government to run the house. We participated on several issues. But, when the chit fund issue and transfer of money to BJD bank account were raised, the government resorted to stall the proceedings,” said Leader of Opposition rasingh Mishra, who belongs to the Congress.
