Deputy Speaker`s post: Virbhadra rejects BJP’s demand
Dharamsala: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh Wednesday ruled out the possibility of offering the post of Vidhan Sabha Deputy Speaker to the Opposition as suggested by the BJP.
The Deputy Speaker would be only from the Congress, he told reporters here.
"Why Prem Kumar Dhumal did not start this tradition during the previous BJP regime?" asked Virbhadra.
Dhumal, the Leader of the Opposition, had yesterday said the BJP would not field its candidate for the post of the Speaker to maintain healthy traditions.
He asked the Congress to abide by the traditions and offer the post of Deputy Speaker to the Opposition.
