Two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislators were marshalled out, when they sought an apology from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for using “unparliamentarily language” during a recent debate on guest teachers.
Speaker Ram Niwas Goel ordered the two, Manjinder Singh Sirsa and Om Prakash Sharma, be marshalled out as both kept raising the issue despite repeated requests to stick to the agenda of the proposed metro fare hike, for which the session has been convened.
The move, however, did not go well with the other two BJP MLAs, Vijender Gupta and Jagdish Pradhan, as they also walked out along with their party colleagues.
Sirsa alleged that Kejriwal’s statement in the House, during the 4 October debate on guest teachers, directed at the BJP was “derogatory and insulting to women”.
Goel, in his response, said the BJP was merely trying to divert attention from the issue of metro fare hike, before ordering the officers to take the BJP legislators out of the House.
