Friday - July 19, 2019 7:52 pm , Category : INDIA
Bhopal, July 19 (IANS) Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker N.P. Prajapati asked state Home Minister Bala Bachchan to defer his reply to a debate on his department's grants as the state police chief was absent from the House.
The Speaker said the police chief's absence on Thursday would be treated as contempt of the House.
Director General of Police V.K. Singh had gone to Delhi for a meeting. But 11 other officers, including the Principal Secretary (Home) were present in the gallery.
Senior opposition leader Narottam Mishra raised the point of order asking the Home Minister if the DG had his permission for absence from the House, leading to a heated debate over the bureaucratic indiscretion.
The Speaker questioned the attitude of the bureaucracy and asked the Home Minister, Chief Minister and Home Secretary to take action in the matter.
