Bhopal: Amid uproarious scenes created by ruling BJP in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, the House was on Thursday adjourned indefinitely without discussing the Opposition sponsored no-confidence motion.

The no-confidence motion was to be taken up after the Question Hour, Zero Hour and discussion on call attention motions, but when Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh began to speak, party`s deputy leader Choudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi rose and said there were many flaws in the motion.

Chaturvedi said the motion did not contain a number of things which required to be mentioned.

Even now, 721 pilgrims who had gone to Uttarakhand were missing and this was not mentioned in the motion, he said.

The Congress MLA also said the issue involving former finance minister Raghavji, who has been arrested over charge of sodomy, did not find a mention in the motion.

He also referred to a tweet by Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh criticising Raghavji.

The state Assembly had on Tuesday admitted the notice of no-confidence motion moved by Ajay for discussion.

The Opposition wanted to bring a no-confidence motion against the BJP-led state government over several issues, including alleged corruption by ministers, fall in law and order in MP and rise in crime against women.
