Virbhadra Singh rejects proposal to give Dy Speaker’s post to Opposition

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh has rejected the idea proposed by Leader of Opposition Prem Kumar Dhumal that the post of Deputy Speaker should be left for the Opposition.

Leader of Opposition earlier proposed that the Congress could start a tradition of leaving the post of Deputy Speaker for the Opposition. However, reacting on it Chief Minister said that “You shall reap whatever you have sown”.

He said that in 1998, when BJP came in power, the Congress had strength of 31 MLAs in the House. However, the BJP even denied the post of Leader of Opposition to the Congress.
