Uproar in Rajasthan Assembly over Speaker's attitude
Jaipur, March 3 (UNI) The Rajasthan Assembly was adjourned for two hours today after an uproar over the Speaker's alleged partisan attitude towards the Opposition benches.
Congress legislator C P Joshi, who was angry after not being allowed to pose supplementary questions on arm license, charged that Speaker Sumitra Singh was being unnecessarily harsh towards the Opposition.

Opposition leader Choudhary objected to the Speaker's partisan attitude saying the Speaker cannot behave differently with ruling and opposition members. When he said to the Speaker that ''you cannot win from your constituency again,'' the ruling party memebrs protested.
Heated exchnage ensued between both the parties. Congress legislators came in front of the Speaker and then the Speaker adjourned the House amid commotion.
