The Left Front and Congress members on Monday staged a walk-out in the West Bengal assembly after Speaker refused to admit their no-confidence motion against him and adjourned the session sine die. As soon as the house assembled in the second half, Left front and Congress members wanted to move the no-trust motion against the Speaker.

But Speaker Biman Banerjee disallowed it on technical ground. Both left front and Congress members then staged walkout. CPI-M leader Sujan Chakraborty later told reporters that the Speaker adjourned the house on sine die without admitting the motion brought by them and Congress together.

However, BJP members stayed back in the house and were not part of the opposition motion. Congress leader Manoj Chakraborty said it is a black day and government was bulldozing their rights.
