However, slogans of ‘Kala kanoon’ (black law) were made from the opposition side when Kumar began responding to the adjournment motion
New Delhi: The government of Bihar has written to the Centre seeking omission of contentious clauses from NPR forms, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said the state assembly on Tuesday.
“Even I don’t know when my mother was born. There is no need to bring about NRC,” said Kumar.
Nitish Kumar’s statement came amid ruckus in the Bihar Assembly polls after BJP members strongly objected to the opposition describing the Citizenship Amendment Act as “Kala kanoon”, leading to brief adjournment of House proceedings.
During the debate on the adjournment motion on CAA-NPR-NRC trouble erupted, which was moved by Leader of the Opposition Tejashwi Yadav and others and approved by Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary after initial objection raised by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shravan Kumar.

Nitish Kumar said it should be taken up at a suitable time and not during the Question Hour.
However, CM Nitish Kumar had given an assurance that the issue will be debated during “the next session”.
Chaudhary said that since the budget was to be presented around 2 pm and both the treasury and the opposition were in agreement that a debate could be held, he was approving the adjournment motion.
However, slogans of ‘Kala kanoon’ (black law) were made from the opposition side when Kumar began responding to the adjournment motion.
BJP ministers such as Nand Kishore Yadav and Vijay Kumar Sinha strongly objected this, who countered the opposition with the question “does Parliament pass a black law?”
A lot of heated exchanges ensued and members from both sides came near the well-forcing adjournment of House proceedings for 15 minutes.
