Cong MLA's son found dead, legislators raise security concerns

As soon as State Home Minister Shanti Dhariwal informed the House that Congress MLA Nathuram Sinodiya's son Bhanwar had been found murdered, other Congress MLAs Raghu Sharma, Pratap Singh Khachariyawas, Parliamentary Secretary Girraj Singh Malinga and others demanded proper security arrangements for legislators and their family members.

In his reply, Dhariwal informed the House that the state government had already issued orders to provide personal security officer to MLAs and PSOs have been made available to several legislators.

However, Malinga said that PSOs should be provided advanced weapons while others complained that SPs were not "serious" in providing PSOs.

Dhariwal said Bhanwar Lal Sinodiya's body was recovered from a village under Narena police station circle here.

Bhanwar was allegedly abducted by four people yesterday in a car from Ajmer district.
Acting swiftly, police arrested two accused last night and one of them Sikandar confessed that Shehjad, his other partner had shot at Bhanwar.

Dhariwal, however, said it was not confirmed whether Bhanwar had been murdered.
Meanwhile, Opposition BJP today protested the proposed hike in electricity tariff and Bhanwar's killing and staged a walk out from the House.

In his reply to a question asked by CPI(M) MLA Amra Ram, Energy Minister informed the House that state government has reprinted in electricity regulatory commission for 19-24 per cent hike in tariff.

He assured that it will not affect farmers and BPL people who in all are 56 per cent of total electricity consumers.

However, BJP opposed it and staged a walk out.Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said the walk out was unfortunate and the Opposition should extend their support because deficit of electricity companies has reached up to 30,000 crore.

Earlier during the Zero Hour, BJP protested agaist the government over the deaths of 15 hospitalised women in Jodhpur
