As soon as the House assembled for the session, opposition Congress and AIUDF sought to raise the two contentious issues through an adjournment motion after oaths were administered to four newly-elected MLAs.

When the Speaker did not allow it and asked them to raise the issues after the Question Hour, members of the two parties went to the well of the House, shouting slogans and displaying placards. Later, they staged a walkout from the House.

The Congress MLAs then assembled at the entrance of the House and lay down on the verandah, shouting slogans against the BJP-led government in the state. The House continued normally without the presence of the opposition MLAs.
