Opposition Shiv Sena-BJP members today brought bundles of dry fodder to the legislature complex to highlight the severe drought in the state.
Displaying empty "handas" (water pitchers), the Shiv Sena-BJP members flayed the "inadequate" measures taken by the government for tackling the water scarcity.
MNS MLAs tried to block the car of Governor K Sankaranarayanan in the complex to protest over issues such as drought, dropping of regional languages from UPSC exam, and rising cases of atrocities against women and Dalits.
MNS members remained absent during the Governor's address to the joint sitting of Assembly and Legislative Council on the first day of the budget session.
