National People’s Party leader Kirori Lal Meena accuses both BJP and Congress for pointing fingers at each other over corruption but not taking any action.

Meena lashed out at Congress and BJP accusing the members of the two parties of never missing a chance to lay serious corruption allegations. “However, neither of the two have initiated a concrete action when in power,” said Meena, demanding to know when the present BJP government, which had released a black paper on the previous Congress government, planned to initiate an inquiry. Talking to reporters outside assembly, Meena said he raised these issues in the house.

However, the speaker had expunged the remarks made by Meena and other legislators during the session in the assembly.

Earlier during the zero hour, Beniwal had raised the issue of crimes against foreign tourists, even alleging that this was one of the main reasons why the state had witness a decline in their number. “There are frequent cases of rape and fraud,” he said, making a mention of the kidnapping of a French tourist, about which the Jaipur police was not aware about until the French embassy intervened.

He also raised the issue of an Australian tourist being found dead in a hotel in Nagaur, which was owned by one of the cabinet ministers. His personal attack on the minister was ordered to be expunged by the Speaker. Drawing similarities about suspicious death of Sunanda Pushkar in a hotel in Delhi, Beniwal demanded an inquiry in the case similar to the one launched by central government. “The suspicious death of the Australian tourist should be investigated by a special investigation team,” he demanded.

The issue of Rajasthan Teachers’ Eligibility Test again came up for discussion in the house on Tuesday. Congress whip Govind Singh Doatsara raised the issue of 2,743 teachers who were recruited on the basis of the results of RTET 2012. Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said that the high court had stayed the termination of these 2,743 teachers but a final decision would be taken after the newly formed committee to review the RTET submits its report. Senior BJP legislator Ghanshyam Tiwari, while participating in the debate on governor’s speech had also demanded that RTET be abolished.

Govt to assess damage

The state government has ordered an assessment on the damage to crops due the recent unseasonal rains and frost, which would be completed within a fortnight.

Agriculture minister Prabhu Lal Saini assured the house that chief minister Vasundhara Raje had already issued the necessary directives. “The small and margin farmers, whose crops have suffered a damage, will be adequately compensated. The compensation would be given through the state calamity relief fund and also through crop insurance after the actual assessment,” he said. Giving details of the reports received on crop damage, he said major crop of coriander sown in 1.28 lakh hectares in Kota division had perished.
