Opposition’s Left Democratic Front (LDF) members turned the Kerala Assembly upside down Thursday as they tried to stop the Finance Minister K.M. Mani from presenting the budget. The CPI(M) led opposition had earlier warned that it would not let Mani present the budget in the assembly as he is facing bribery charges in the bar license scandal.
The opposition members who had stayed overnight in the assembly blocked the way to the Speaker’s podium and threw away his chair and mike. The unruly opposition tried to stop the Finance Minister from entering the House by blocking the entrance. A scuffle also broke out between the members of the opposition and the House security.
Mani, however managed to enter the House from a different entrance and present the budget. The news that the budget has been passed turned the LDF and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) workers protesting outside the assembly violent.
The police had to resort to lathi-charge, teargas shells and opened water cannons to disperse the violent protesters. They set fire to a police vehicle and beat up several police personnel.
Introduction: Buying furniture can be a tough task given the variety of furniture available, and all of them are loaded with different features.

Choosing visually lightweight furniture is one such smart trick to amp up your carpet area. When buying furniture, make sure you pay careful attention to the visual weight of the furniture more than its actual weight.

Furniture that is trim and fit will suit your small spaces best. There are two types of chair that are commonly bought, study chairs and office chairs.

Study chairs: These types of chairs are usually favored by students, young and adults.

In choosing a study chair, for example, one with fat rolled out arms and heavy huge bodies will not only take a lot of space but also give your room the illusion of being stuffed. You should pick a study chair with skinny arms and a tight, upholstered back instead. The three things you should keep in mind while buying a study chair are:
1) Armrests should allow your shoulders to relax and your elbows to stay close to your body for comfort and support. If going for a no armrest type chairs, it will be less restrictive and increase mobility.
