Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Assembly was on Monday adjourned till 26 July after paying condolence to sitting BJP MLA Mathura Prasad Pal, who died after prolonged illness.
After the House paid condolence to Pal, a BJP MLA from Sikandra constituency in Kanpur Dehat, Speaker Hriday Narain Dixit adjourned the House.
There would be no sitting of the House as decided by the business advisory committee, he said.
Pal, 72, who was suffering from cancer, was on his way to Delhi for treatment when he died near Mathura on 22 July.
Pal had recently come to the UP Assembly on a wheel chair to cast his vote in the presidential poll.
Uttar Pradesh sends 31 members to the Rajya Sabha. With 403 elected members in the state Assembly, a candidate will require at least 34 votes for victory
Given its numbers in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly, the BJP can expect smooth sailing on seven Rajya Sabha seats on June 10. Taking that score to eight would need a special push
