Jaipur, Sep 7 (IANS) The last day of the Rajasthan Assembly’s monsoon session on Friday saw relentless attacks by the opposition Congress on the Vasundhara Raje-led BJP government, forcing the Speaker to adjourn the House twice before adjourning it sine die.

The Opposition on Friday cornered the government over rising fuel prices and for a lathicharge on Youth Congress workers on Thursday.

Amid ruckus, six bills were passed in the Assembly.

Under the Rajasthan Stamp (Amendment) Bill, the surcharge at the rate of 10 per cent on the stamp duty has been increased to 20 per cent in order to generate funds for conservation and protection of cow.
