The Assembly was adjourned till December 9 after offering condolences to former minister and Samajwadi Party (SP) MLA Rajaram Pandey Thursday.

He had served as minister under five CMs — Kalyan Singh, Ramprakash Gupta, Rajnath Singh, Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav.

The Assembly will assemble December 10 when Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will table the supplementary budget.

Earlier, Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey held an all-party meeting soliciting support for smooth functioning of the House.
