Shiromani Akali Dal legislators raised slogans and refused to heed to Speaker Rana KP Singh’s request to discuss the matter after question hour, prompting him to adjourn the House for 30 minutes.Chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh tweeted his disappointment in a series of tweets. “Sad Akalis are not allowing the House to run. They know we are committed to loan waiver. We will do what they didn’t do in 10 years!”
“Akalis know they have to answer for many omissions and commissions they don’t have answers for. They cannot run away it,” he said in another tweet at 10.30am.Earlier, the Speaker told the Akali MLAs and their Aam Aadmi Party counterparts, who were demanding immediate farm debt waiver, that were wasting question hour time. He assured them that they would get time to speak on the issue after question hour but in vain.
He adjourned the House for 30 minutes.An hour later, Amarinder tweeted a photo of the MLAs paying tribute to playwright Ajmer Singh Aulakh, who passed away on Thursday morning.“Paid homage to eminent Punjabi writer, professor Ajmer Singh Aulakh ji, who passed away, observed 2-min silence in memory of the departed soul,” he wrote.
