Ever since Vajubhai Vala’s portfolio changed from Gujarat’s finance minister to Assembly speaker, he has been at his humorous best. Recently, chairing the state Budget 2013-14, Vala had had enough when allegations were hurled back and forth between the ruling party and the Opposition, stalling all House business.
