The proceedings on the second day of the monsoon session of the Haryana Vidhan Sabha on Tuesday were disrupted time and again over the Anna Hazare and Jan Lokpal issue.
After having adjourned the House twice, Speaker Kuldeep Sharma suspended 30 Opposition MLAs for the day -- 29 of the Indian National Lok Dal and one of the Shiromani Akali Dal.
Initially the BJP legislators staged a walk-out after the Speaker turned down their Legislature Party leader Anil Vij's plea to set aside Question Hour and take up a “discussion on corruption”.
The Speaker ruled that such a discussion could be allowed only after the completion of Question Hour. However, the BJP MLAs led by Mr. Vij trooped into the well of the House. The Speaker finally named Mr. Vij and he was removed from the House by the marshals.
During Zero Hour, the INLD MLAs said the Vidhan Sabha should consider a resolution recommending that the Union Government adopt the Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament.
The Speaker, however, said that he could permit a discussion on corruption if he was allowed to “complete the ongoing Assembly proceedings”.
The INLD MLAs too rushed to the well of the House. The House was then adjourned for 10 minutes.
The scenario was repeated when the House re-assembled. The Speaker eventually suspended 30 Opposition MLAs for the day.
