MP Assembly Adjourned Sine Dine Following a No-Confidence Motion

BHOPAL: The MP Winter session was adjourned ahead of its schedule sine dine on the fourth day. The BJP issued a befitting reply to the no-confidence motion by voice vote on Thursday. The no-confidence motion was brought into the house by Congress on Wednesday and continued for almost 12 hours extending to the midnight. In a media interaction, Bharatiya Janata Party State General Secretary and MLA Sartendu Tiwari said “During the discussion on this proposal, the facts presented by the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and other ministers of the ruling party in the House have once again exposed the true colour of the Congress among the public. At the same time, the ongoing factionalism and upheaval in the Congress has also come to the fore before the public.”

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh, in his detailed reply, asked the opposition members to introspect as to why their government fell and accused the Kamal Nath-led government of 15 months of rampant corruption. 

“Our government has opened high schools, higher secondary schools, hostels and ashrams in tribal areas. The team of educated children for ‘JAYS’, with whom Congress leader Hiralal Alawa is involved as a teacher, came about through an initiative of Shivraj Singh Chouhan and not the Congress, said, Chauhan.

“The Congress reduced the number of houses which were to be built under the central government’s ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’. They returned central funds allocated for building over 2 lakh houses under this scheme. They had to bear 40 per cent share of funds which they did not. The poor were deprived of houses. Also, under the Prime Minister’s ‘Kisan Samman Nidhi’ scheme, we only had to send the list of beneficiaries to the central government. But they (Congress) did not even send that list, he added.”

Chauhan repeated his oft-made accusation that the Vallabh Bhavan (state secretariat) had turned into a den of touts during Nath’s rule. The CM said that during 165 days of Congress rule, 450 IAS and IPS transfers were done along with 15,000 other transfers.
