Bhopal: On the issue of two different answers given to the same question in two different sessions of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, Speaker Girish Gautam told Forest Minister Vijay Shah today that it is a question mark on the prestige of the House and the minister should take action in this matter.

During the Question Hour, Congress MLA Alok Chaturvedi said that in response to one of his questions, he was called an encroacher in the last session, whereas this time it has been denied. He alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched to defame him. Newspapers had also published news against him as he was called an encroacher in the Assembly.

On the acceptance of the Minister, Speaker Gautam said that two different types of information have come in the House, are the concerned officials not serious. On the instructions of the Speaker, the minister assured action in 15 days, but the questioning MLA and other Congress MLAs kept insisting on quick action. During this, the members of the Congress started an uproar demanding the suspension of the responsible officer.

On this matter, Leader of Opposition Dr. Govind Singh said that the Forest Department took lakhs of hectares of farmers' land in the state. The government should solve such cases within the time limit.

Former Chief Minister Kamal Nath alleged that in such cases 70 per cent of the pattas of tribals are cancelled. On this, Minister Shah said that the leases which have been canceled have been investigated at least thrice before cancellation and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan himself has looked into the matter.

Meanwhile, due to uproar in the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly for the second consecutive day over alleged atrocities on tribals and other issues, the proceedings of the House were adjourned indefinitely and the monsoon session concluded in just two days.

Before adjourning the proceedings for an indefinite period, a supplementary agenda was also brought and the formalities of getting all the important bills passed along with their introduction were completed. 

During this, the members of the main opposition Congress in the House reached in front of the Speaker's seat and kept shouting slogans for about half an hour, due to which nothing could be heard clearly.

At the same time, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra and some other ministers and BJP MLAs were also seen speaking in support of the government.
