Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Assembly was on Friday adjourned sine die after the 12-day long monsoon session (July 11-22) got over.

Speaker, Ishwardas Rohani, said both the government and the Opposition successfully raised the "voice of the man standing in the last row of the society" during the session, which had been the motto of the House.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that despite being unwell, the Speaker discharged his duties effectively, which showed he was a man of strong will-power.

Chouhan also complimented the Opposition, especially Congress Party’s Ajay Singh -- who took charge as the new Leader of Opposition in this session -- saying that Ajay played a constructive role by raising the issues relevant to the people.

Ajay Singh thanked the Speaker for his support to the Opposition despite not being well, and also the treasury benches for addressing the issues raised.

BSP Leader, Ramlakhan Singh, thanked the members on behalf of his party.

During the 12-day-long session, nine sittings took place, first supplementary budget for the year 2011-12 was passed and ten government bills were passed.

As many as 2,666 questions (starred and unstarred) were asked, 653 notices for calling-attention motion and 122 petitions were received.

Also, five non-government resolutions were passed and an adjournment motion was discussed.
