Cong, CPI-M stage walkout from Bengal Assembly

PTI | Kolkata |

The Congress and the CPI-M on Wednesday staged a walkout from the assembly after an adjournment motion on the state government’s inability to pay dearness allowance to its employees was rejected by the chair.
The Congress first walked out after the motion, moved by it, was turned down by the speaker and the CPI-M followed suit, expressing moral support.
“The state government has money to spend on festivals and carnivals, but it does not have money to give DA to the state government employees. This only shows its true colours,” Congress leader Abdul Mannan said.
