Bhopal, Aug 10 : The Madhya Pradesh Assembly was adjourned till noon on Tuesday owing to Congress pandemonium – during the Question Hour – over inflation.
Replying to a query, Finance Minister Jagdish Dewda said, “Tax was enhanced on fuel during the predecessor Kamal Nath dispensation and the same continues to be in force.”
The words drew an immediate reaction from Mr Nath. Other Congress members began speaking all at once and trooped into the well.
“I have submitted an adjournment notice regarding high prices and the same should be taken up for discussion,” erstwhile chief minister Nath said.
As the ruckus continued unabated, Speaker Girish Gautam adjourned proceedings till 1200 hrs.
