Rajasthan Assembly Speaker CP Joshi on Thursday decided to recall a session, a day after he adjourned the House indefinitely over repeated disruptions by ruling and opposition members. The development comes after the members met with the Speaker to reconsider their decision to adjourn the House.
Assembly Secretary Pramil Kumar Mathur issued a notification to recall the session on Friday on the instructions of the Speaker, an official statement said.
The Business Advisory Committee of the Assembly had fixed the agenda of the House till September 18, but Joshi adjourned the House indefinitely before the scheduled time.
On Wednesday, the leaders of the ruling party and the opposition came face-to-face during the discussion on the Rajasthan State Road Transport Services (Prevention of Traveling Without Ticket) (Amendment) Bill, 2021.
The House was adjourned twice due to a heated argument between the ruling party and opposition legislators during a debate on a road transport bill. Later, the Speaker adjourned the House sine die saying that he would not allow the Assembly to function like this.
He said that both the ruling party and the opposition have the responsibility to uphold the tradition and dignity of democracy in the House.
