The BSP and BJP members staged a walkout in the Legislative Council over delay in payment of dues to sugarcane farmers and on issue of power crisis, respectively.
Chairman Ganesh Shankar Pandey rejected both notices.
Through their separate adjournment notices, BSP and Congress members raised the issue of delay in payment to sugarcane growers against procurement of their produce by sugar mills of private, public and cooperative sectors. BSP members wanted a debate on the issue.

Speaking on the admissibility of notice, BSP member and Leader of Opposition Naseemuddin Siddiqui said around Rs 7,732 crore was due on private mills, Rs 648 crore on government mills and Rs 21 crore on public sector mills against procurement done in 2013-14.
Siddiqui alleged that the state government was anti-farmer and “it had entered into a deal with mill owners to benefit them”.
Rejecting the allegations, Leader of House Ahmed Hasan claimed that no amount was due for payment on public sector mills. He said the payment of Rs 645.64 crore due on cooperative mills will be done soon.
Hasan claimed 57 FIRs have been lodged against sugar mills so far for delaying the payment. Hasan also said the BSP government had sold the mills and several of them had to shut down due to irregularities.
BSP members then staged a walkout while accusing the SP government of being “anti-farmer”.
The BJP members, in their notice, said that barring a few ‘Samajwadi” districts like Etawah and Mainpuri, the entire state was facing the problem of power crisis.
Ahmad Hasan replied that the state government was taking steps in improving the power supply in the state. He said villages and district headquarters were getting power supply more than the scheduled roster.
