The NC leaders shouted slogans against the government and blocked entry to the civil secretariat and the assembly.

They carried banners reading "end the state-sponsored terrorism, killing of innocent people and use of pellet guns against the protesting students".

Later, as soon as the session began, the legislators entered the assembly and started protesting. Congress MLAs also joined them.

Meanwhile, groups of traders, manufacturers and other businessmen staged a sit-in in the city's Lal Chowk area against the GST.
