A day ahead of Bihar Assembly’s special session called to prove the new government’s majority, Speaker Vijay Kumar Sinha on Tuesday asserted that he will not resign despite a no-confidence motion moved by MLAs of the ruling Mahagathbandhan’. Sinha, a BJP leader, claimed that the motion was based on false charges against him, and brought without taking care of legislative rules.

In the no-confidence motion, which seems to have cared little for rules (sansadiya niyam’), I have been accused of partisanship (pakshapat’) and a dictatorial attitude (tanashahi’). Both allegations are blatantly false. Resigning in such circumstances will hurt my self respect, he told reporters. The Speaker, however, did not comment further when asked what was going to be his party’s stance on Wednesday, with the numbers in the House clearly stacked against the BJP.

I am at present occupying the Chair and shall be bound by the norms associated with the constitutional office. My priority will be to discharge my duties in accordance with rules, Sinha added.
