Poonia also shouted 'Andolanjeevi Jindabad'.

After sometime, chief whip and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Dhariwal intervened and took him to his seat but he continued shouting slogans. Deputy chief whip Mahendra Chaudhary and Revenue Minister Harish Chaudhary also intervened and took him outside the House but he returned after a few minutes and continued shouting slogans. However, the governor continued with his speech. The House was adjourned briefly for his departure. To express solidarity with protesting farmers, Congress MLA Indra Meena reached the assembly building driving a tractor.

“I want to give a message to farmers across the country that Congress is standing with them on their agitation against the farm laws,” she told reporters outside the building.
