Budget session of Assam Legislative Assembly begins

The budget session of the Assam legislative assembly began today at Dispur in a stormy note. The opposition parties staged a walk out over a Maharashtra MLA's remarks about purported dog meat-eating habits of the people of Assam.

The opposition parties have demanded action from the government over this issue as well as a suo motto action from the Speaker of the house.

Earlier, the Congress legislators have also disrupted Governor Gulab Chand Kataria's speech in the assembly on the same issue.

Mr. Kataria in his maiden speech in the assembly said that appealed all members of the house to work together for the all round development of the state.

He said that due to efforts of the Centre under Prime Minister Narendra Modi all major insurgent gropus have either laid down arms or joined the peace process.
