The second day of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly got off to a stormy start on Thursday with opposition parties storming into the well of the House raising slogans and demanding the dismissal of Union minister Ajay Mishra over the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

UP Finance Minister Suresh Kumar Khanna presented a vote on account of Rs 1,68,903.23 crore for four months of 2022-23.
