The Himachal Pradesh assembly on Friday witnessed unruly scenes as members of the treasury and opposition benches virtually exchanged blows. The brawl sparked off after arguments over the opposition BJP’s demand for a debate on a clash in a Shimla college.

Earlier, BJP member Gobind Thakur stood up soon after the question hour was over and wanted to raise the issue of the clash on August 20. He alleged that the college principal manhandled a girl student during the clash. The speaker said this issue was under his consideration and he was awaiting a reply from the government.

Later, all the BJP legislators walked up to the speaker’s podium, raised anti-government slogans and disrupted the proceedings.

The entire business of the house was carried out amid sloganeering by the BJP members before the house was adjourned for the day.

After half-an-hour of brawling, Speaker B.B.L. Butail adjourned the house for 15 minutes which too didn’t bring any rest to the pandemonium that was roused by the BJP members.

The Himachal Pradesh government on Tuesday made it mandatory for trekkers to carry a GPS device to tackle any exigency.

A decision in this regard was taken at a review meeting chaired by Additional Chief Secretary Shrikant Baldi here on preparedness for the monsoon.

He said it was important that trekking and other ‘yatras’ were restricted during adverse weather. “It would be made mandatory for trekkers to have a GPS device so that they can be provided all possible help in case of any emergency,” said Baldi.
