Suspension of BJP's O P Sharma from Delhi Assembly revoked

The Delhi Assembly today revoked suspension of BJP MLA O P Sharma, after a proposal moved by AAP MLA Jitender Singh Tomar was passed with voice vote.

Sharma was suspended by the Speaker earlier this week for making alleged derogatory remarks in the House.

Referring to the Delhi High Court order setting aside disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs in an office-of-profit case, Tomar said that today was a special day and that Sharma's suspension should be revoked.

AAP legislators accused Sharma of using "unparliamentary and undignified" language in the House. The BJP MLA allegedly made the remarks while objecting to the presence of Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot in the House.

This was the second time Sharma was suspended from the House.

Earlier, he was suspended for two sessions for allegedly using derogatory language against AAP MLA Alka Lamba in November 2015.
