Opposition withdraws no confidence motion against Speaker

GOVERNOR-AT-VIDHAN-BHAVANThe Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly on Monday withdrew its no-confidence motion against Speaker Dilip Walse-Patil.

BJP legislator Devendra Phadanvis told the House that after discussions with Leader of Opposition Eknath Khadse and group leaders, it has been decided against pressing for the one line motion – “Speaker of the Legislative Assembly be removed from his post” – to be taken up.

Enraged with the Speaker’s decision not to allow time for debate in the House during the winter session last December, the Opposition members had moved a no-confidence motion against the Chair.

The motion, listed in the day’s business, was moved by Khadse and supported by 38 other members.
