Through the booklet, the Congress has hit out at the BJP government, accusing it of doing injustice to people in areas like education, health, employment, agriculture, child welfare, among others in the four years since Narendra Modi became the prime minister.
In 2002, during a visit to Ahmedabad in the aftermath of the riots, the then prime minister Vajpayee had asked Modi, then the CM of Gujarat, to perform “Raj Dharma” at a joint press conference, marking a pivotal moment in the entire episode.
“Govt’s promise of withdrawing cases against Patidar youth during the quota agitation, writing off farm loans, the rise in petroleum prices and water crisis in the state need to be discussed,” says Leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani.
Taking part in the BJP’s nationwide Loktantra Bachao Upvaas (Fast for Saving Democracy), Chief Minister Vijay Rupani joined state BJP leaders on their fast. Initially, he was scheduled to participate in a fasting event in Lal Darwaja area.
The order, which was issued on March 28, also states that an MLA cannot ask an “unstarred” question when the Assembly is in session and the three “unstarred” questions have to be submitted when the Assembly is not in session.
In a statement issued by Parliamentary Affairs ministers Bhupendrasinh Chudasama and Pradeepsinh Jadeja, they said that the Assembly has powers to frame rules for its functioning and is not answerable to any outside authority in following the same, and that it can act differently from the said rules at its discretion.
