Uttarakhand ministers scuffle over demand of voice vote on Finance Bill

Dehradun (Uttarakhand), Mar. 18 (ANI): A scuffle broke out between Uttarakhand Ministers Harak Singh Rawat and Mantri Prasad Nethani inside the state assembly here on Friday over the demand for voice vote on the Finance Bill.

The Uttarakhand Assembly earlier witnessed a uproar after Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal rejected the opposition’s demand for a voice vote on the Finance Bill, and passed it.

Supporters of Harak Singh Rawat raised slogans in his support and were seen arguing with the Chief Minister’s supporters.

Reports claim that the Congress led-government in Uttarakhand is in a precarious situation, with 12 rebel Congress MLAs expected to cross vote during the Budget.

The rebels are led by former chief minister Vijay Bahuguna and Agriculture Minister Harak Singh Rawat.

The Congress currently has 36 seats in the 71-seat Uttarakhand Assembly. (ANI)
