Tapovan: Winter session of Himachal Pradesh Assembly was today adjourned sine die after a six-day stormy winter session.
As soon as the House met for the day, Mohinder Singh (BJP) raised the issue of notice of adjournment motion given by party members on reported allegation of Congress MLA, Ram Kumar Chaudhary, who had alleged that he had been implicated by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.
Speaker Brij Bihari Lal Butail, however, rejected the motion as the matter was subjudice. BJP members including Ravinder Singh Ravi and Rajiv Bindal pressed for the discussion and stated that it’s a serious allegation against the head of the Govt and needed to be discussed in the House.
After Speaker turned down their demand, opposition members raised slogans and trooped into the well of the House.
Amidst the din, the chief minister apprised the House about the “Best State” award received by the Himachal Pradesh government for health and investment sectors in Delhi yesterday and after that speaker adjourned the House sine die.
After the house proceeding, speaking to the press leader of opposition Prem Kumar Dhumal accused the Congress from running away from debates on the issues of “corruption and political vendetta” during the whole winter session.
Dhumal said that during the winter session, the Opposition had moved three adjournment motion notices for discussion on these issues, but the government had evaded them. He targeted at Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and said that he tried to wriggle out of the situation. Dhumal said that CM will have to clarify his position on the allegations.
