One-day session ploy to avoid Opposition ire: AAP

Share This

Chandigarh, August 17

Leader of the Opposition and AAP MLA Harpal Singh Cheema, reacting to the convening of a one-day monsoon session of the Vidhan Sabha, termed it "a clever ploy on the part of the government to run away from discussions on the core issues".

In a statement, Cheema said Punjab was facing innumerable issues, including the Covid pandemic and liquor and sand mafia, which needed to be addressed by the government, but the Congress did not want to face queries posed by the Opposition on the floor of the House.

He said AAP had been demanding the live telecast of the session proceedings, but the state government had played a cruel joke with the people besides making a mockery of the democracy by reducing the Assembly session to just one day. Cheema asked Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Speaker Rana KP Singh to reconsider the decision and hold the session for at least 15 days. — TNS
