Ruckus in Delhi Assembly, two MLAs marshalled out

Rebel AAP MLA Kapil Mishra and BJP MLA Manjinder Sirsa were marshalled out of Delhi Assembly House here on Tuesday.

Mishra was marshalled out after he ignored repeated warnings to desist from advancing to Speaker Ram Niwas Goel's podium. Sirsa was marshalled out as he objected to this.

"Sirsa tried to stop the marshals' way (while they were taking away Mishra). I'm forwarding this matter to the Privilege Committee," Goel said.

Outside the House, Sirsa and Mishra objected to the Speaker's decision.

"Rajya Sabha seats have been sold and there should be discussion on this. Voters have been insulted," Mishra said, holding out the poster of AAP Rajya Sabha-elect Sushil Gupta with a snake around Gupta's neck and Kejriwal's head instead of the snake's.

He said that he was marshalled out for holding out the poster inside the House, while AAP MLAs had done the same in the House on Monday and no action was taken against them.

On Monday, AAP MLAs had protested in the well of the house by holding out posters against BJP and none were marshalled out for the conduct.

Meanwhile, Sirsa said that he was not blocking the way of Marshalls.

"I was just asking Kapil to go out. They (AAP) are scared of me," he said.
