As soon as the Governor began her speech and completed
reading just a couple of lines, the Congress MLAs raised
slogans "Hisab Do, Jawab Do (give account and give answers)"
and "Kisan virodhi sarkar nahi chalegi (don't want anti-farmer
government)" and walked out of the Assembly.
The Governor was not allowed to complete the customary
address following which the session was adjourned.
"The Governor's speech had nothing but praise for
Chief Minister Narendra Modi. It represented no voice of the
people of Gujarat, hence we oppose it," Leader of Opposition
Shaktisinh Gohil told reporters out of Assembly.
Gohil alleged that the Comptroller and Auditor General
(CAG) of India has blamed Gujarat government for
mis-utilisation of fund of over Rs 26,000 crore.
"The Modi government should first give account of the
mis-utilisation and answer our questions," he added.
Gandhinagar: The opposition Congress
today staged a walk-out during the Gujarat Governor Dr Kamla's
customary address to the legislative Assembly on the first day
of the Budget session.
