A number of BJP MLA’s were evicted from the Delhi Assembly after they created a ruckus following the Speaker’s refusal to allow them to raise issues related to water and power problems in the city.

The trouble started soon after the Question Hour when Speaker Yoganand Shastri said that due to shortage of time, a special mention notice given by the Opposition could not be taken up.

The BJP members immediately jumped to their feet and demanding that the issues, which concerned the general public, must to be discussed. They trooped into the well of the House after which the Speaker ordered the marshals to remove them.

Leader of Opposition VK Malhotra protested the Speaker’s decision and left the House on his own. “We all wanted to have a discussion over power and water problems faced by the public. But rather than giving us time, a number of MLAs were thrown out of the assembly. This is not done at all. The assembly is meant for such discussions. I decided to leave on my own as there was no point in sitting there,” said Malhotra.
