Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat, Congress MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco also joined other opposition benches.
In his ruling, the Speaker requested the members that they should not ask questions that are too detailed. “It is right of the minister to postpone the reply, when the answer is too detailed,” he said.
Patnekar said “I request the members should not ask questions, that too, detailed bcause it has to be collected, collated and given within the time limit, as the minister has to verify the information tabled because minister is held responsible for the information that he has submitted.”
