Imphal, July 31: The Assembly Session concluded today.

The session which started on July 4 had 18 working days and during the course of the session 190 starred questions and four unstarred were asked, one short duration discussion was discussed, 25 calling attentions were raised and two matters requiring urgent discussions were also discussed.

Two privilege motions were taken up including the historic case against two Judges of the Gauhati High court and two petitions were also taken up.

The Chief Minister Okram Ibobi today assured the House that if necessary the government will institute a CBI enquiry into the recent MCS/MPS appointment case.

The Chief Minister and I Hemochandra during the course of the debate on the matter shouted against each other.

At one Stage I Hemochandra urged the Dy Speaker to ask the Chief Minister to sit down when he is speaking.

Hemochandra was not satisfied with the reply given by the Chief Minister after Hemochandra raised a discussion on the annual reports of the MPSC which was tabled on July 26.I Hemochandra pointed out that it is mandatory for the MPSC to submit the annual report to the Governor and to place the report for discussion in the House.

No reports were submitted during the last four years.

When he went through the report he only saw irregularities and malpractices.

The Das Commission report is also not implemented he also said.

There are some misleading reports he said.

Interestingly the Commission does not observe confidentiality he said.

Almost all the candidates seem to know the marks they get, this is amazing.

A particular candidate filed a case saying that his mark was reduced.

How can a candidate know marks are reduced he questioned.

Everything is supposed to be done secretly.

The public has lost faith completely in the MPSC he said.

BD Behring said the Commission postponed an examination four times as none of the candidates came out to give money.

Ultimately the examination was held at night and the Commission simply said none of the candidates are fit.

Hemochandra wanted that a House Committee be formed and the all the documents be seized.

The Chief Minister said he will see what he can do.
