No Question Hours in 4-day session of HP Assembly


    Four-day Monsoon Session of Himachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha has adjourned sine die today without discussing any Question Hours. The Session would be remembered for the wrong reasons that not even a single query was discussed in the four-day session. It was the first time in the history of this Assembly when the entire monsoon session or any other session ended without conducting the Question Hours and no answer was replied amid the Opposition protests and disruption experts covering Himachal Pradesh Assembly.


    As the House assembled in the morning at 1100 hours, Opposition BJP did not end the deadlock and refused to withdraw their adjournment motion on the Gudiya case. BJP chief whip Suresh Bhardwaj alleged that Chief minister was facing the CBI probe in the corruption case and was released on the bail by the CBI court. He said that BJP was presented adjournment motion to discuss the deteriorating law and order and Gudiya Gang Rape case since the beginning of the Session but it was rejected by the Speaker. He said that the State Government and state police were still trying to halt the probe as CBI has alleged that it was not assisted by the Special Investigation Team of Police.


    Mr Ravinder Singh Ravi said that Congress Government and state police tried to cover up the Gudiya Gang rape case as no FIR registered in the case for three days. However, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh alleged that BJP members were trying to mislead the House by giving the wrong statement. He said that Opposition charges are total lies and they should not mislead the House. After simmering deadlock in the House Speaker was forced to adjourn the house till 1200 hours.


    The House re-assembled at 1220 hours but suddenly opposition took u turn and thawed deadlock and Parliamentary affairs minister Mr. Mukesh Agnihotri urged opposition to allow to run the house as it was about adjourned today. Number of reports were presented in the house by various assembly committees. The house which runs for hardly half an hour to discussed and pass the Himachal Pradesh Health Science University bill adjourned sine die by the Speaker. The Session would be known for two reasons that expect in last minutes opposition did not allow to run the house but it did not lodge a single walk out and not a single questions were discussed in all the four days during the Question Hours.
