Politics Of Walkouts
This is regarding Himachal This Week’s cover story of August 26, 2017, “Politics of Walkouts”. Almost every session of Himachal Assembly has been disrupted due to walkouts by the opposition party citing numerous reasons. People of this hilly state always look forward towards healthy and constructive debates between the ruling and opposition parties with a hope that their problems would be solved. However, they feel disappointed when precious time is lost in walkouts on various issues. One hopes that this tradition of staging walkouts from the assembly after a new government is formed in Himachal after upcoming elections.

Recovery of dangerous weapons point that administration had no system in place to keep a vigil on his dera. Why not he be considered a terrorist because arms and ammunition have been recovered in large number from his dera?
