Remark on Sonia Gandhi's visit expenses infuriates Cong Saturday, August 4, 2001

GANDHINAGAR: The Congress led by leader of the Opposition Amarsinh Chaudhary on Thursday staged a walkout from the Assembly to protest against co-operation minister Ramanlal Vora's remark that the state government had borne the expenses of Congress president Sonia Gandhi's tour of the quake-affected Kutch.

The minister made the remark when Congress member Raghavjibhai Patel insisted that the state ministers should return the Rs 3.76 lakh they had claimed as travelling allowance and daily allowance during their official visit to various places in Kutch district since January 26.

It was the first Congress walkout during the current budget session of the Assembly.

Infuriated by the remark, the Congress members pointed out that Sonia was Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha and her visit to Kutch was in that capacity. They insisted that Vora's comment was in bad taste and he should withdraw it failing which the Speaker should expunge it from the record.

Vora said the ministers had toured Kutch to supervise relief and rehabilitation operations. It was a humanitarian gesture which was also part of their discharge of duties and hence the demand by a former minister, well versed with administrative matters including reimbursement of TA and DA bills to ministers, was reprehensible.

But Raghavjibhai persisted with his argument in a harsh manner and some other Congress members joined him. At this stage Vora, who is in-charge of the GAD portfolio, hit back asking "What do the Congress members have to say about the huge expenditure the state government incurred on the visit of their leader Sonia Gandhi?" This silenced the Opposition for a while.

Speaker Dhirubhai Shah's plea to the Congress members to maintain their cool did not yield any result and they continued to raise slogans and thump the benches. They demanded that the ministers return the TA and DA amounts and that Vora withdraw his comment against Sonia.

Shah pulled up members from both the sides and asked them not to make political remarks during the Question Hour as it deprived other members' right to raise questions regarding problems in their constituencies.

The Opposition did not budge and continued to raise slogans. Finally, when the minister refused to oblige them, they walked out in a huff. They were back within minutes and participated in the proceedings.
