Shimla, April 7 (IANS) The Himachal Pradesh assembly was adjourned sine die on Thursday by Speaker B.B.L. Butail.

During the budget session spanning over a month, with a nine-day break in between, the assembly had 25 sittings during which 701 starred and 241 un-starred questions were asked.

After the playing of national song ‘Vande Mataram’ had ended, the chief minister stood up and chanted ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, apart from saying ‘Himachal Pradesh zindabad’.
Members from the treasury benches too raised the slogans after Virbhadra Singh even as the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party members were mocking them.
Thereafter, Butail declared that the house was adjourned.
