BJP boycotts Haryana assembly proceedings

chandigarh Updated: Aug 28, 2012 17:25 IST

The opposition party BJP on Tuesday boycotted the proceedings of the Haryana assembly, alleging that they were not allowed to raise various important issues concerning the state.

During the zero hour, BJP legislature party leader Anil Vij asked speaker Kuldeep Sharma the fate of calling attention motion notice given by the party on the Rewari issue wherein police had opened fire on farmers sitting on a dharna in protest against acquisition of their land.

The speaker told him that the notice for calling attention motion had been disallowed with Vij taking a strong exception to the speaker's refusal.

He pointed out that earlier the adjournment motion notice given by the party on the Kanda issue had also been turned down by the chair on the opening day of the monsoon session.

Observing that the BJP was not being allowed to raise important issues,Vij said there was no point for the party members to keep sitting in the House. They would rather prefer to boycott the House proceedings.

Led by Vij, the BJP Members then walked out of the House boycotting the part of the proceedings, on the concluding day of the session.
