MP Assembly abruptly adjourned sine die after ruckus over MPPEB scam

Madhya Pradesh Assembly's budget session was on Thursday abruptly adjourned sine die 29 days ahead of schedule amid continuing pandemonium over MP Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam during which the state's 2015-16 budget was passed by voice vote.

The budget presented on Wednesday was passed without any discussion amid bedlam created by the treasury benches, which strongly condemned opposition Congress' behaviour of repeatedly disrupting the House over the MPPEB scam since its commencement on February 18.After repeated adjournments of the House, Speaker Dr Sitasharan Sharma adjourned the House sine die, sparking a blame game between the ruling BJP and Congress.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra blamed the Opposition for the situation, saying they were misusing the forum of the state Assembly to malign Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in connection with the MPPEB scam.

"The opposition was indulging in 'character assassination' of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan," he alleged.
