Loan Waiver: Assembly adjourned for tomorrow without transacting any business

Agency News

Belagavi, Dec 20: The penultimate day of the Winter Session of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly was adjourned by the Speaker Ramesh Kumar for tomorrow without transaction, even as Opposition BJP members continued their dharna in the well of the House demanding Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to tender apology for derogatory remarks made against Opposition leader B S Yeddyurappa yesterday while replying on farmers loan waiver issue raised.

The BJP members led by former Chief Minister Yeddyurappa charged that Mr Kumaraswamy was indulging in making false promise on implementation of the farm loan waiver and hoodwinking the farmers.

As soon as the House reassembled in the afternoon, after adjournments twice, the BJP members thronged to the well of the House shouting slogans against the Chief Minister and did not allow the Speaker to make any statement.

The Speaker's separate discussion with Yeddyurappa, K S Eshwarappa and Chief Minister Kumaraswamy went in vain.

Mr Kumaraswamy, reportedly denied for having made any derogatory remark on any member in the house and refused to tender a needless apology.

Stalemate continued with both the side sticking to their stand and this forced the Speaker to adjourn the House for tomorrow. (UNI)
