4th Assembly Session of the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly Session has been adjourned on Tuesday till the next session over uproar in the Assembly. And no issues in Manipur were discussed as expected earlier by the people of the state.
The much-awaited assembly session began with a proposal for obituary from Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. But, five Congress MLAs demanded to expand to a five-day session instead of a single-day session and include the present crisis in Manipur as one of its agenda. However, instead of paying heed to the demands of the opposition parties, the Chief Minister held a two minute silence to pay tribute to the 6 former MLAs - expired earlier this year.
A little later, the Speaker of the House, Th. Satyabrata adjourned the session for half an hour over the uproar in the Assembly due to the demands of the 6 MLAs, 5 of Congress, and one JD(U).
Later when the assembly session resumed after the adjournment, the uproar started again. At this, the Speaker adjourned the house till the next session.
Earlier. State BJP sources indicated that few resolutions on the ongoing ethnic crisis were likely to be adopted in the session.
However, on the contrary, the tribal bodies have resolved that no resolution adopted by the assembly will be binding in Kuki areas. The Congress also said that a one-day session is not in the public interest.
Last month, the government recommended a session by August 21, but later revised it to August 28 as it didn’t get a green signal from the Raj Bhavan. Only last week, the Chief Minister's Office announced the assembly will be convened on August 29.
