Patna: Amid uproarious scenes, Bihar assembly was adjourned for 35 minutes during question-hour as MLAs of chief opposition RJD stormed into the well of the house again on Thursday demanding a CBI probe into alleged irregular and illegal allotment of lands by Bihar Industrial Development Area Authority (BIADA).

After shouting slogans in the portico of the assembly, RJD members entered the house as soon as it sat for the day and raised the issue of alleged BIADA land scam.

RJD MLAs Raghvendra Pratap Singh and Samrat Choudhary wanted to know from the chair about the fate of the adjournment notice they submitted for a debate on the issue.

When speaker U N Choudhary asked them to raise the issue at an appropriate time and allow the question hour to continue, they trooped to the well.

They repeated yesterday's scene in the well shouting anti-government slogans and demanded that the state government order a CBI probe.

The speaker, however, went ahead asking ministers to reply to the short-notice and starred-questions of the members in the house.

As the din continued, Choudhary adjourned the house till 1200 hrs.

When the house re-assembled, the speaker took up the zero hour and after that he asked the ministers to reply to the call-attention notices of the members.

The ministers carried forward replies to the call-attention notices forcing the RJD MLAs to stage a noisy walk-out of the house.
