BJP MLA uses objectionable word against AAP legislator, matter referred to privilege committee
Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel later referred the matter, of BJP legislator O P Sharma using an objectionable word against AAP's Amanatullah Khan, to the House Privilege Committee.
High drama ensued in Delhi Assembly today after a BJP legislator used an "objectionable" word against his colleague from the ruling AAP during a discussion on water shortage in the national capital.
Sharma was speaking on water shortage in his constituency. During his speech, he also criticised government officers.
When Amanatullah Khan opposed this, Sharma used the objectionable word against him.
Following this, AAP legislators trooped into the Well of the House, demanding strict action against the BJP legislator.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia too slammed Sharma, saying it cannot be tolerated in the House.
"This is not the question of an MLA. How can he use this word in the House? It shows the mentality of his (BJP) party. Strict action should be taken against him," Sisodia said.
