The winter session that concluded here yesterday witnessed an over-aggressive Opposition, compassionate Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur trying to please everybody, Speaker Rajiv Bindal trying to strike a balance between the Opposition and ruling and a few ruling legislators trying to assert their presence.
On the first two days, the Congress, led by leader of the Opposition Mukesh Agnihotri, adopted an aggressive posture, staging a walkout from the House in Question Hour, alleging that the issues being taken up by Congress MLAs were not being allowed by the Speaker. On the second day, the leader even raised slogans against the Speaker that were condemned by BJP MLAs.
Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Suresh Bhardwaj brought in a resolution to condemn the behaviour of Congress leaders but the Speaker did not allow it, saying that let better wisdom prevail on the Opposition legislators. On the first two days, Congress legislators remained out of the House during Question Hour.
