Jaipur, Mar 3 (UNI) Rajasthan Assembly was today adjourned thrice after Opposition Congress protested against motion of expulsion against party colleague Bharat Singh over alleged violation of constitutional provisions in appointment of acting chairman of the Sangod Municipal Committee.
The issue of irregularity in the appointment of acting chairman was raised during Question Hour by Mr Singh. He said the post which was actually reserved for an OBC woman was held by a man from the category for a period of six months.
The issue took serious turn and led to a serious deadlock between the Opposition and Treasury Benches following Mr Singh's allegations against then Minister of State for Civic Bodies Pratap Singh Singhvi and the subsequent motion by Government Chief Whip Mahavir Prasad jain for Mr Singh's expulsion from the House for his "misconduct".
The ensuing deadlock continued for three hours forcing the three adjournments in a row for facilitating Chamber parleys for amicable solution.
Finally, on third reassembling, Deputy Speaker Ram Narain Vishnoi said member Mr Singh had conveyed to him in his chamber that he did not mean any disregard to the Chair or the decorum of the House even then he did regret if he had caused disruption in the House.
Later Government Chief Whip Mr Jain withdrew his earlier motion of expulsion against Mr Singh.
This paved way for smooth conduction of the proceeding of the day and the Chair took up the scheduled business.
Eds. rest pick up suitably from the earlier.
