Patna: Opposition RJD staged a walk out from state Assembly on Tuesday, accusing the state government of introducing 12 bills without following the proper rules.

The RJD members were irked over the manner the copies of the bills were sent to them late in night, a day before discussion on them in the state Assembly.

The bills under the amendment proposals were those which had been passed in 2005 but were not implemented.

Opposition leader Abdul Bari Siddiqui said, “we received eight out of twelve bills at 1 or 2 in the midnight. If government can’t give us time even to study them, then it should pass the bill only by issuing ordinance. “

Justifying their walkout, opposition members said that government made bills without thinking properly that’s why amendment proposals came.

Responding to the opposition charges, Deputy Chief Minister Shushil Kumar Modi said, “Opposition had no objection on bills therefore the government decided to make a way. Half a dozen of the bills were sent to them a day before. If they had any objection, they could have proposed amendment.”

“For the past twenty years I am attached to this assembly, and I have witnessed that many bills have been passed in a few minutes. Actually, the opposition was not ready for it,” he added.
