The Gujarat Congress has demanded a special assembly session of five days to debate on the law and order situation in the state, in the wake of terror attacks in Ahmedabad.

Government spokesperson Jaynarayan Vyas in reply to this demand said that they were ready to call the session, but the Congress should understand that at present the priority should be rehabilitation of the victims and investigation of the attacks, and not convening assembly sessions.

In a meeting of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly Congress members convened on Thursday and chaired by Leader of the Opposition, Shaktisinh Gohil, a resolution was passed requesting the Chief Minister and the Speaker of the state Assembly to summon a special session.

The resolution further said that a five-day session should be convened to enable the elected representatives to deliberate on terrorist activities and deteriorated law and order situation in the state and have introspection on pros and cons of the system.

The members present during the meeting also expressed their sympathies towards the family of the victims and hoped for speedy recovery of those injured in the blasts that have till now claimed 53 lives and injured 140 people.
