Main opposition RJD in Bihar on Tuesday created uproar in the state assembly alleging large-scale irregularities in National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) and demanded a CBI probe into it.

Before the house assembled for the day, RJD MLAs organised demonstration in the main portico of the house holding anti-government placards and demanding probe into the alleged NRHM scam. The agitated members later entered the house and alleged large-scale irregularities in NHRM. They alleged that under NHRM ovaries of a large number of women were removed.

“It is an extremely serious issue and the irregularities under NHRM should be probed by CBI,” they said.

Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary’s ruling rejecting the adjournment notice by RJD MLA Akhtarul Imam and others saying it was not in proper order, made the opposition MLAs angrier. They demanded that the state government must ensure a debate on the subject which they claimed “very very serious.”
