TOUGH SPEAKER

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Ra­jasthan speaker C.P. Joshi is crack­ing the whip in the assem­bly. He has cur­tailed the num­ber of passes is­sued to jour­nal­ists and has re­stricted them from meet­ing mem­bers and min­is­ters in their rooms without an ap­point­ment. Even trea­sury benches are up­set be­cause he re­fused to let two se­nior min­is­ters re­spond to al­le­ga­tions by the op­po­si­tion. Joshi be­lieves min­is­ters can re­spond through a proper mo­tion and jour­nal­ists need only cover house pro­ceed­ings.
