[ZESTCaste] Guj Assembly: Cong walkout on Rangnath Mishra report

Guj Assembly: Cong walkout on Rangnath Mishra report


Gandhinagar, Dec 19 (PTI) Opposition Congress today staged a walkout
from the state Assembly on the issue of discussion on Rangnath Mishra
Commission's recommendations.

The commission favours reservation to minorities and giving SC status
to the converted Dalits.

Gujarat minister for social justice and empowerment Fakirbhai Patel
introduced a resolution in the Assembly, asking the Central government
to not implement the recommendations which will create social
divisions in the country.

However, leader of opposition Shaktisinh Gohil demanded that since the
matter is sub judice and the report has just been placed before
Parliament, it could not be discussed in the state Assembly.

But the speaker, Ashok Bhatt, allowed discussion on the issue, which
promoted the Opposition to walkout on the last day of the three-day
brief Assembly session.
