Ranchi : After showing prolonged resistance to continue with the amendments it proposed in the CNT Act, 1908 and SPT Act, 1949, the Government has finally decided not to place the twin Bills in the House again.
Assembly Speaker Dinesh Oraon on Wednesday just readout the comments of Governor Droupadi Murmu made while returning the legislations.
Clarifying the position of the Government and fate of the amendment Bills-2016, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Saryu Roy said that the legislations would no longer be pushed through.
"The Governor, in her comments, has said that purpose and preface of the CNT and SPT Bills are not clear and the law should be uniform for across the State. The amendments made in one law is not there in the another law etc. Now, the Government has withdrawn it. Had it not been the case the Government would have placed it before the House again. It was well within its right to do so before sending back to the Governor," said the Minister when asked outside the Assembly.
The Governor while sending the Bills back had mentioned about representations she received on the proposed amendments from different quarters, apart from the ambiguities and told the House to reconsider the proposals in her two separate messages.
Nonetheless, the JMM went ahead with its protest when its MLAs trooped into the Well flagging pamphlets. The protest forced the Speaker to issue a warning to the members before adjourning the House till noon and calling a meeting of the leaders of all the parties in his chamber.
When the House reassembled, the Speaker provided an opportunity to the leaders of different parties to express their views about ending the deadlock continuing between the Government and the Opposition during previous three sessions.
