Gandhinagar: The Gujarat Assembly was Tuesday adjourned amid uproarious scenes in the House after Congress demanded a discussion on the law and order situation in the state following the arrest of former Minister Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.

The Congress today raised the demand for discussion on
law and order situation in Gujarat after the arrest of Shah
and other policemen in the 2005 fake encounter case.

Speaker Daulat Desai however rejected the demand
following which Congress members started shouting slogans
inside the House. Later, BJP members also indulged in
sloganeering against the CBI.

Raising of slogans by the members of the ruling and
opposition parties led to a lot of commotion after which Desai
adjourned the House for an hour.

Despite this, Congress members continued their protest
after coming out of the house and also displayed placards
condemning the law and order situation in the state.

Talking to mediapersons, GPCC President Siddharth Patel
said, "Congress has raised the demand of discussion on law and
order situation in the state after the arrest of 15 police
officials, ex-Gujarat Minister Amit Shah and the murder of RTI
activist Amit Jethwa besides illegal mining issues."

"The Speaker has not given us the chance, so we will
once again raise the issue in the House," Patel said.

During the Question Hour, while replying to a question of
Khoman Sinh Chauhan of Congress, Gujarat Minister of State for
Home Praful Patel informed that 15 police officials have been
arrested in the state in connection with various cases in last
two years.
He, however refused to give further details saying the
cases against them are pending in the court and matter is
sub-judice.
