The Uttar Pradesh authorities on Wednesday introduced a supplementary funds of Rs 7,301.52 crore within the state Legislative Assembly for monetary 12 months 2021-22 to satisfy extra expenditure.
The supplementary funds was introduced by state Finance Minister Suresh Kumar Khanna within the presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Khanna mentioned the supplementary funds may be very small and ought to be handed with none dialogue.
“It is only 1.33 per cent of the annual budget of Rs 5.5 lakh crore presented by the government earlier,” Mr Khanna mentioned.
Introducing the supplementary funds, Mr Khanna mentioned the main target is on extraordinarily vital problems with public welfare or fulfilling any specific scheme.
“There are some new demands in this, especially for creating job opportunities for the youth for which Rs 3,000 crore have been allocated. The other highlights are social security fund for advocates, improvement in electricity system, construction of Ambedkar Smarak and Saanskritik Kendra, conservation of cattle and increasing the basic infrastructure in Ayodhya,” he mentioned.
He identified that in a span of four-and-a-half years of the federal government, the notion of the general public has modified.
“The biggest parameter is the evaluation of any government, and the view of the public is that the Yogi Adityanath government in UP has made new records, and has also broken some records.
“Hence, I want to urge the House via you (Speaker) to move the 1.33 per cent supplementary funds with none dialogue, it might be good,” he said.
Subsequently, Leader of Opposition Ram Govind Choudhary apparently taking a dig at Mr Khanna, said the government has made new records, to which Mr Khanna retorted,”This is true.”
Further, pointing at Yogi Adityanath, Mr Khanna said, “He is the Ram of politics, and he’s sitting right here to defeat the evil powers.” This prompted a loud desk-thumping by the members of the ruling party.
Later on, Speaker Hriday Narayan Dixit informed the House that an oil painting of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar will be installed in the House.
“Uma Shankar Singh had mentioned in regards to the set up of an oil portray of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, and an oil portray is being made. It has been ordered by the Vidhan Sabha, and the Chief Minister was consulted on this. It might be put in,” Mr Dixit said.
Former UP Cabinet minister and chief of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) Om Prakash Rajbhar on Wednesday had demanded that an oil painting of Ambedkar be installed inside Vidhan Sabha Bhavan, and sat on a protest.
On Tuesday, Rajbhar had handed over a letter in this regard to the UP Assembly Speaker.
Meanwhile, the entire Question Hour was washed out as members of Opposition Samajwadi Party and Congress trooped into Well of the House on the issue of price rise.
As soon as the House assembled at 11 am, members of Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress stormed in Well of the House and started raising slogans against the government over price rise.
Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Ram Govind Choudhary said “inflation has skyrocketed, and the general public is feeling harassed because of the hovering costs of petrol, diesel and cooking gasoline”.
As soon as Mr Choudhary said this, the SP members trooped into Well of the House, and raised slogans. Congress members also followed suit.
Speaker Dixit said, “The state authorities has nothing to do with inflation. If your ”rangarang karyakram” (vibrant programme) is over, then let the House perform.”
However, the Opposition members continued to lift slogans, resulting in adjournment of the House proceedings for 40 minutes, which was later prolonged for the whole Question Hour, until 12.20 pm, by the Speaker.
