The Sikkim Assembly Wednesday passed the interim budget of Rs 3566.29 crore for six months of the financial year 2019-20 and two bills.
The House was then adjourned sine die.
Tuesday being a holiday in the Assembly, Speaker K N Rai put the interim budget and the two bills for voting by the members on Wednesday and they were passed by voice vote.
The two bills are the Sikkim Regulation of Transfer of Land (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and the Sikkim Prohibition of Beggary (Amendment) Bill, 2019.
The first bill seeks to insert two new sections in the Sikkim Regulation of Transfer of Land Act, 2005, to ensure protection of land belonging to members of the Limboo community.
Two MLAs of opposition Sikkim Krantikari Morcha and an Independent member boycotted the proceedings alleging that the brief session deprived them of opportunity to put up questions before the state government.
