Rajasthan Government tabled in the assembly today, the controversial Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment 2017) bill.
Not only opposition but also a ruling party MLA strongly opposed this bill as the Assembly proceedings started. Opposition called this bill unconstitutional and said that government is trying to impose ‘undeclared emergency’ in the state through this bill.
Ruling party’s MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari also opposed this bill. While, Home minister Gulab Chand Kataria said that government is ready to discuss the provisions of the Bill. He said that opposition should put its views when time arrives. However, Congress MLAs staged protest march.
It is to be noted that through this bill government is going to amend section 156 (3) and 190 (1) of CrPC. As per proposed provision, the magistrate cannot order or investigate any case against Government servants before the prosecution approval.
Meanwhile police arrested congress leaders including State Congress Chief Sachin Pilot while they were staging protest march towards Raj Bhavan against the controversial bill.
