No-trust motion: Guv tells Chouhan

The Monsoon session had come to an abrupt end on July 11 but the Governor refused to sign the notification

The tussle between the ruling BJP and the Congress in Madhya Pradesh over the aborted no-trust motion spilled over to Raj Bhavan on Friday with Governor Ramnaresh Yadav writing to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to convene an Assembly session.

The Monsoon session had come to an abrupt end on July 11 but the Governor refused to sign the notification that would have declared the session officially over,and in between went to Delhi to meet senior Congress leaders including Sonia Gandhi and Kapil Sibal and President Pranab Mukherjee.

After receiving the letter in the evening,Chouhan asked Speaker Ishwardas Rohani,who was in Jabalpur,and Legislative Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra,who was in Datia,to reach the capital to discuss the fallout on Saturday.

While saying that he had not seen the letter yet,Rohani said the government was not bound to call a session on the Governor’s advice. Sources said the Governor has not quoted any rules under which the session should be convened.
