Bhubaneswar: The Congress Legislative Party (CPL) has decided to bring to the notice of Governor Muralidhar Chandrakant Bhandare regarding sudden change to the adjourned sine die of the Assembly without taking the Opposition into confidence.
Criticising the State Government for this step, Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh said that, the House was adjourned even though several discussions on many important issues and Bills were pending. He also alleged the Government on the demands to table the special report of the Lokpal on the land acquisition for the controversial Vedanta University near Puri in the Assembly.
However, National Congress Party (NCP) leader Amar Prasad Satpathy said that, a majority of Congress MLAs were in favour of adjourning the House for Panchayat polls. He criticised Singh for his absence in the Valedictory session of the House and said it was for Singh, the House went without transacting any business for seven minutes.
