Unruly scenes were witnessed in Himachal assembly on Tuesday, including a scuffle between MLAs of ruling BJP and opposition Congress over corruption charges against health minister Dr Rajiv Bindal forcing speaker Tulsi Ram Sharma to adjourn the House.

It's the first time in the history of Himachal Pradesh vidhan sabha that such an unruly incident has taken place. Trouble began when leader of opposition Vidya Stokes stood up to ask the speaker about the fate of the adjournment motion notice given by the Congress.

Stokes who was constantly booed by the BJP MLAs, maintained that the ruling party was deliberately avoiding discussions on charges of corruption against Dr Rajiv Bindal. Members of the Congress wore black badges to mark their protest.
