Chief parliamentary secretary (CPS) Ram Kishan Fouji rubbished the charge and he was backed by chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) MLAs created ruckus over the issue, leading to their suspension from the assembly. Later, BJP leader in the House Anil Vij, who also sought action against Fouji, was suspended.

The INLD leaders submitted a memorandum to governor Jagannath Pahadia in this regard in the evening.

The day saw the arrival of Sirsa MLA Gopal Kanda, accused in airhostess Geetika Sharma suicide case, who was on Thursday granted interim bail by a Delhi court till October 4 for attending the session.

An eighth-part report of the assembly committee, which examined irregularities by trusts and societies of former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's family, was tabled in the House. It concluded that land was allotted illegally to Chaudhry Devi Lal Memorial Trusts in Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh.

When simplicity poured

Poetry came out of the rhythmic drumming on the tin roof of my neighbour’s house; the shadow of grey clouds covered the ungainly houses that were constructed without any architectural expertise; the ticklish soft wind floated around announcing the coming of rain in my village. Writes Yuvika Grewal.
