Replying to second part of question, the Minister said the list of individual occupants of the land being voluminous is being compiled and can be provided to the members separately.

On this Ambardar agitated and said, “Government in reply itself stated that huge chunk of land has been encroached, so what is compulsion to hide the names of people who hold the state land”.

However the Minister said that the data is still in compiling stage and voluminous in nature and whenever the process is completed it will be separately handed over to him”.

Reacting sharply, Ambardar said, “If we get incomplete replies than what is fun of coming here and I’m not alone who want this data. It is property of house and should be shared with all the members”.

Amid uproar, the Minister tried to pacify the member  but he stormed towards Well of the house and yelled “Government is trying to hide something, why the names of bigwigs are not disclosed in the reply, I am not satisfied with answer of government and walked out of the house in protest.”
