A ‘gratitude motion’ as a mark of respect to Gopinath Munde would be adopted by the state legislature, speaker Dilip Walse Patil announced on Thursday.
The announcement came after opposition legislators demanded that they be allowed to pay respect to the BJP leader, who died on June 3.
The House had to be adjourned twice after proceedings began on Thursday with the ruling benches insisting that the House had already approved a ‘condolence motion’ following Munde’s demise on Tuesday and argued that adopting another ‘condolence motion’ would set a wrong precedent.
Tuesday’s condolence motion was approved amid protests from the Opposition citing absence of BJP legislators and deviation from the tradition of moving such motions after last rites are performed.
Speaker Patil asked group leaders to evolve consensus on how to resolve the matter. The suggestion to move a ‘gratitude motion’ was decided during this meeting, which was later approved by the house.
