Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has said that MLAs have raised many good questions and are helping to run the house smoothly. Talking to media persons informally on the opening day of the state assembly session at Vidhan Sabha on Tuesday CM said that during the session they asked their questions and they were replied by the government.
It was noticed that generally it happens rarely that all the questions put up by the legislators are answered. From this point of view, the first day of the session was successful. Visibly happy Chief Minister said that it was the uniqueness of democracy that legislators raise questions related with the common masses.
Asked about the questions raised by the legislators, whether on petrol prices or food prices, he said that the Parliamentary Affairs Minister have answered the questions. CM said that inflation was well under control and the cause of rise in petrol and diesel prices was due to increase in the prices of crude oil at the international level.
On the issue of opposition walkout on rising inflation, Chief Minister said that opposition should not walkout of the assembly but join the discussion.” The government is listening to their questions and they should also have patience to listen to the answers. By boycotting the house it seems that they are not concerned about the replies of their questions but only want to create ruckus. The state government is willing to discuss each and every issue in the assembly and the opposition should participate instead of running away from discussion,” he said.
Asked about the law and order situation, CM said that police has acted swiftly in the heinous crimes like gang rape and arrested the accused. Regarding broad daylight murder, he said that the murderers have been identified and would be arrested soon. Police are working efficiently to control crime.
