AAP, BJP MLAs spar in Delhi Assembly, House adjourned for the day

The assembly saw repeated adjournments on the first day of its three-day session and hardly 10 minutes of proceedings could be held.

 

The Delhi assembly was adjourned for the day, amid protest by MLAs of the ruling AAP against Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena's alleged interference in the working of the city government.

The assembly saw repeated adjournments on the first day of its three-day session and hardly 10 minutes of proceedings could be held.

The day started with opposition BJP MLAs carrying oxygen cylinders inside the House to protest against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's alleged inaction to curb air pollution.

Speaker Ram Niwas Goel asked the BJP members to take the cylinders away and questioned how they brought them into the House despite security.

Taking cognisance of the "lapse" and noting that the cylinders could be used to injure someone, he summoned security personnel to his chamber over the issue.

Even as the protest by BJP members refused to die down, he said, "Please have some shame. I urge members to maintain peace." Later, after a war of words broke out between BJP and members of the ruling AAP over "illegal and unwanted obstructions and interferences" by the lieutenant governor (L-G), Goel adjourned proceedings for 10 minutes.

AAP legislator Saurabh Bhardwaj initiated the discussion on calling attention motion on the issue of "illegal and unwanted obstructions and interferences in the education of children and training of teachers".

Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly Ramvir Singh Bidhuri expressed opposition on this issue and defended the LG.

Speaker Goel accused Bidhuri of trying to be the LG's spokesperson, following which AAP MLAs came into the well of the House.

After the House reconvened after the brief adjournment, AAP MLAs again started raising slogans against the LG over his "objections" to sending Delhi government teachers for a training programme to Finland, following which the speaker again adjourned the House for half an hour.

Subsequently, the House was adjourned for the day
