AGARTALA: The Tripura state assembly witnessed unprecedented uproarious scenes on Friday, the opening day of the month-long budget session.

In protest of the governor's assertion, opposition MLAs of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) backed by Congress legislators rushed to the well of the assembly and shouted slogans like "go back governor", "shame, shame governor".

The governor read out around five pages of the speech before leaving the house in half-an-hour.
