Even as the monsoon session was called off prematurely, the government will convene a week-long session ahead of the winter session in Dharamsala this year end.

“It's unfortunate that opposition under the leadership of Prem Kumar Dhumal indulged in repeated disruptions of the assembly session,” said chief minister Virbhadra Singh here on Thursday.

Assembly sessions were meant for debate and discussions in the interest of the people of the State, he said, adding that instead sitting and discussing the issues of development, the opposition behaved in discourteous manner.

The monsoon session, which was scheduled to have 16 sitting, was called off on August 12 in wake of stand off with the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party.

“Government, now intends, to come out with a proper town and country planning bill for which we intent to hold a week-long assembly session,” said the CM.

The CM also expressed concern over the 20 wireless sets that went missing from Dharamsala-bound bus.
He said he would order to ascertain the lapses. “Loss of police wireless sets in transit was gross negligence on the part of the authorities. Lapse will be viewed seriously and inquiry will be called,” he said.

It was on October 11 that 20 wireless sets went missing from the carriage box of the Dharamsala-bound bus. The wireless sets were dispatched from Kullu for India-West Indies match being hosted in Dharamsala.
