Oppn disrupts Gujarat Governor’s speech



The fourth session of the 11th state assembly began here on Thursday with the Opposition Congress disturbing Gujarat Governor Kailashpati Mishra’s speech. The session will continue till February 25.

The governor had to abruptly end his speech and request having been read as the Congress MLAs continued to thump the benches and began shouting anti-government slogans to highlight the plight of the farmers in the state. They also alleged that the government was behaving in an autocratic manner. Even when Mr Mishra was walking out of the House after delivering the inaugural address, Opposition MLA Bharatsinh Solanki, the son of former chief minister Madhavsinh Solanki, urged that he listened to their demands.

Mr Mishra in his speech talked about the initiatives taken by the government in various sectors. He also said that in the next five years, five new SRP battalions would be created in a phased manner. It has also been decided to recruit 3,000 police constables to strengthen the state police force, he said. The governor also pointed out that the last year was free from communal clashes. He attributed it to the “steps taken by the government.”

Vote on account will come up on Friday. Having earlier welcomed the move of vote on account instead of a full-fledged budget, Opposition leader in the assembly Amarsinh Chaudhary has now criticised it. He alleged that the ruling BJP feared that levying of any type of taxes might backfire in the forthcoming elections.
