HT conducted an online poll asking if any issue could justify the behavior exhibited by the Andhra MPs in the Lok Sabha.
Of the 2,418 people surveyed by 9:45pm on Thursday, 53% people responded that the Andhra MPs behaved in an unruly fashion, while 45% people felt that their behaviour was justified. A mere 2% of those who took the poll didn't have an opinion of what happened in the Parliament.
The pepper spray left several parliamentarians, staff and journalists coughing and teary-eyed. Many MPs tried to rush outside to avoid the smell and chemical effects of the spray.
Doctors were called and three MPs were taken to hospital.
