Speaker Dinesh Oraon strongly objected to the Opposition's demand of adjourning the House over the 6th State Civil Services examination for which the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) has announced schedules even as an all-party committee is examining the alleged discrepancies in the 5th State Civil Services examination results.
The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM) wanted to bring an Adjournment Motion in the House as they deemed that the upcoming examinations are not justified.
Oraon said, “If an adjournment motion is rejected once and it is brought again by other member, then this practice will not stop anywhere and it will become a never ending practice.”
Oraon castigated the Opposition for not respecting House’s decision and holding the House to ransom for few minutes in the first half of proceeding every day. The Speaker condemned the Opposition’s disruptive tactics to corner Government on an issue which has been forwarded to a committee formed by the House. Chit chat over the propriety of the committee formed by the House irked the Speaker further evoking strong reactions from him. Oraon expressed that any question over the House authority to form a committee qualifies as contempt.
