Mumbai: Maharashtra Legislative Assembly had to be adjourned for 20 minutes during the question hour today due to the absence of cabinet ministers, when the House assembled for the day.

There were no Opposition members as well, since they had continued their boycott of the proceedings to protest against not being given enough time to speak on the budgetary demands.

When the House assembled for the day, only BJP legislator Nana Patole came into the House and complained about the absence of cabinet ministers, following which Deputy Speaker Vasant Purke adjourned the House for 20 minutes.

Opposition members came into the House only at the fag end of the question hour after Speaker Dilip Walse Patil agreed to allot more time for debate on the budgetary demands of food and civil supplies, water conservation, rural development and Marathi language.

The Sena-BJP-MNS members had boycotted the replies of ministers yesterday, when the Chair did not give them more time to speak on the demands of home, power and industries.
