Shimla: Pandemonium prevailed in Himachal Pradesh Assembly on Wednesday as agitated Congress members protested over certain remarks made by Chief Minister PK Dhumal against party leaders.

Leader of the Opposition Vidya Stokes, as soon as the House assembled, referred to some news reports in which the Chief Minister had made the remarks against the Congress leaders.

The House had to be adjourned for the day after repeated requests by the Speaker to maintain decorum had little effect on the Congress members who shouted slogans terming the remarks as derogatory.

However, the House transacted the entire business listed for the day and three important bills were also introduced.

The Congress members did not participate in the proceedings.

Later, addressing a rally, Congress leaders including Union Minister V B Singh, AICC general secretary Barinder Chowdhary and HPCC president Kaul Singh attacked the BJP government alleging there was rampant corruption in the state.
