Ranchi: Disappointed over the lukewarm response by many MLAs in declaring their assets, Jharkhand Assembly Speaker C P Singh on Monday extended the deadline to December 21.

"It's sad that only 20-22 MLAs have declared their assets despite the (first) deadline was March 31, 2011," he said on the first day of the winter session of the house.

"By December 21 the rest should submit their property declarations with the assembly secretariat," Singh said.

"Tomorrow I will read out the names of the MLAs who have not submitted their declarations," Singh said, adding early submissions would enable sending the declarations to the union law ministry on time.

Later, the newly elected member from Mandu constitutency Jaiprakash Bhai Patel of JMM took oath as the member of the house.
