Was abused, assaulted inside Delhi Assembly: Vijender Gupta

Vijender-Gupta

New Delhi, Nov. 30 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vijender Gupta on Monday alleged that he was abused and assaulted by the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs inside the Delhi Assembly.

Gupta was evicted from the House by marshals for objecting to the suspension of party colleague O.P. Sharma.

He alleged that he was abused by the MLAs in the assembly and that the marshals had physically abused him while evicting him.

“Once again, the opposition is being mistreated. I was evicted from the House today in a dramatic manner. We just wanted to be in the House to discuss on the Lokpal. We wanted to draw the attention of the Speaker against the partial probe. We wanted the Speaker to look into the matter and consider it impartially,” Gupta told ANI.

“It is unfortunate that the ruling party came to me, abused me and beat me, but the Speaker does not do anything. I have lodged a police complaint, my medical should be done,” he added.

The AAP MLAs were also seen protesting in the Well of the House demanding Sharma’s imprisonment.

Gupta is the second BJP MLA to be evicted from the House after O.P. Sharma, who was suspended for the entire session for using sexist remark against AAP MLA Alka Lamba last week. (ANI)
