The leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta was marshaled out of the Delhi Assembly today amid ruckus following his demand for an apology by Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot over an alleged scam in the procurement of 1,000 buses.

Two other BJP MLAs - Om Prakash Sharma and Jagdish Pradhan - walked out of the House to register their protest on the second day of the Monsoon Session.

Gupta, an MLA from Rohini constituency, alleged the transport commissioner was targeted when she protested procurement of buses against laid down rules.

As the opposition leader was adamant to his demand, AAP legislators countered him, raising slogans against him.

The House proceeding resumed after Speaker Ram Niwas Goel directed him to be marshaled out.

Yesterday, he was marshaled out for "disrupting" the House proceedings over his demand for a National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Delhi.
