Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Congress MLAs raised questions on the working of state government against corruption in the state assembly, here on Thursday. The MLAs were discussing on a ‘vote of thanks’ on Governor’s address in the state assembly.

The state government’s budget session began on Wednesday, and Governor Mangubhai Patel addressed the house and highlighted the works of the government in his address.

On Thursday MLA Rameshwar Sharma presented the proposal of a ‘vote of thanks’ in the assembly.

While addressing on the issue, the MLA highlighted the works of the state government and also the works done by the Narendra Modi government.

He applauded the PM, for the Prana Pratishtha of Lord Ram in Ayodhya and said, ‘We are witnessing the era of Treta Yug, by seeing and watching the Prana Pratishtha of Lord Ram’.

Congress MLA Bala Bachchan stated that, there is a huge deference between the Governor’s address and in BJP’s manifesto, ‘Whatever the Governor had spoken about, it is not mentioned in the party’s manifesto’.

He raised the corruption issue against the government saying, ‘In Badwani district huge corruption is done in tap water scheme. Several cases are pending with the EOW and Lokayukta for the past 20 years to get government approval. Why the state government is quite over the issue?’

MLA Dr Vikrant Bhuria claimed that in the address, no provision has been made for unemployed youths.

He also added that, in the state huge number of unemployed youths are waiting to get jobs. For the past several years around 1.50 lakh posts of SC/ST are vacant and the government is planning to increase the retirement age to 65 years from 62, which is injustice.
