With tomorrow being the last day of the four-day monsoon session of the Assembly, the government seemed to be in a haste to introduce the Bills and get them passed as this will be the last session of this Vidhan Sabha. Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh tabled the Himachal Pradesh Hindu Public Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments (Amendment) Bill, 2017 in the House as nothing could be heard in the din

.Similarly, Industry Minister Mukesh Agnihotri tabled the Himachal Pradesh Single Window Investment Proposals and Facilitation Bill, 2017 and Excise and Taxation Minister Prakash Chaudhary tabled the Himachal Pradesh Excise (Amendment) Bill 2017. At one stage there was even confusion as to whether the Bills had just been introduced or passed by the House.

The Ministers and the Speaker completed the formalities with regard to introduction of the Bill in the din as nothing could be heard as BJP members created ruckus. The Bills are likely to be passed tomorrow without being taken up for discussion as the BJP is unlikely to join proceedings in protest against denying a debate on law and order under Rule 67.
