During the Question Hour in the Monsoon Session of the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, there was a heated debate between the ruling party and the opposition on many questions. The opposition termed the government's written reply on the land law as inconsistent and also raised questions on the figures of paddy procurement. Seeing the controversy erupting over the remarks of MLA Sanjay Gupta during the debate, the Speaker gave instructions to remove the remarks from the proceedings.
The first question in the list of Question Hour was registered by Congress MLA Manoj Rawat regarding the land law. Rawat had asked a question on the preparedness of the government to set the limit on land purchase in the state, but a written answer was given on by the government a day before on this.
However, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Banshidhar Bhagat, giving an oral reply, said that the limit of 12.5 acres for agricultural land, 250 square meters for residential land is already in force. Nevertheless, the CM has already announced a high level committee to consider this subject. Later on the intervention of the Speaker of the Assembly, the correct written answer to this question was given by the government.
Here, there was a heated debate in the House on the question asked by MLA Qazi Nizamuddin regarding the purchase of paddy. Questioning the government's figures, Qazi expressed the suspicion that the purchase figures were a scam. He said that it is not possible to procure 15 lakh metric tonnes in 30 days. Agriculture Minister Subodh Uniyal said that even during the previous Congress government, there was a purchase of 10 lakh metric tonnes, so that was also a scam.
Meanwhile, after the objection of the Leader of the Opposition on a remark of MLA Sanjay Gupta, the Speaker of the Assembly directed to remove the said remark from the proceedings of the House. Pritam also expressed strong objection to the remarks of MLA Kunwar Pranav Champion and said that the MLA should not consider the proceedings of the House as a means of entertainment. During the session, opposition party leaders left no stone unturned to corner the government.
