Karnataka Assembly session cut short, adjourned sine die
Bangalore: With the opposition Congress and
JDS continuing their boycott, the ten-day session of the
Karnataka Legislative Assembly was cut short on Tuesday and
adjourned sine die.
The session commenced on June two with the JDS of former
Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda staying away from day one and
the Congress also keeping off proceedings from last Friday.
Both parties have been demanding the resignation of the
Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and the Speaker K G Bopaiah
contending that the Supreme Court had passed "strictures"
against them while quashing the disqualification of 16 MLAs
(the then 11 BJP rebels and five independents).
The government`s stand is that the apex court had not
passed any strictures, but only made certain observations on
the disqualification order passed by Bopaiah.
With opposition benches vacant, it was smooth sailing
for the BJP government as bills were passed with no debate,
and proceedings were a smooth affair with agenda being
completed much earlier than expected.
Government sources said efforts were made persuade the
opposition to participate in the proceedings but to no avail.
