Opposition expresses displeasure for not being allowed to debate on corruption issue


    Furious opposition expressed resentment and displeasure for not being allowed to debate on the issue of corruption brought by them since the beginning of this session.

    Leader of Opposition Mr. Prem Kumar Dhumal interacting with media person charged the government from running away from important discussion on an issue like corruption. He stated that the government also used the Speaker to enforce their agenda which was unprecedented in history of this hill state.

    Responding to a query leader of Opposition termed it as failure of ruling benches strategy and a loss of both the state government and the Speaker that impasse prevailed on the last day of session.

    He said that on the first day of the winter session few of the BJP MLAs including MLA Ravinder Ravi had proposed for moving an adjournment motion under Rule 67 to discuss the issue of corruption in the House.  However the Speaker turned down their request and later agreed to hold discussion under rule 130 on the proposal given by BJP MLA Ravinder Ravi, said Dhumal.

    He said, when on Thursday when they got the agenda for the next day they were astonished to see that the topic of discussion under rule 130 was totally amended and clubbed with a proposal given by a few congress MLAs also.

    He said that many times the Chief Minister talked about political victimisation against him.” To put the record straight all cases made on Mr. Virbhdra Singh were registered between 2009 and 2011. That was when he himself was Union Minister for Steel and the party in power at the centre was UPA “, justified Dhumal. He said that there was no question of any political vendetta against the Chief Minister.
