New Delhi, Sep 26 (UNI) In a re-enactment of last month's violent episodes in the MCD House, a meeting of the Standing Committee of the Corporation witnessed hurling of a mike on a corporation employee by Leader of the Opposition in the MCD Jaikishen Sharma and the consequent arrival of police at the meeting.
Immediately after the meeting began, the Opposition began disrupting functioning of the House demanding resignation of the Leader of the House Subhash Arya after a local court directing filing of FIR against him in a case related to attack on a Congress councillor.
Just then, the mike on the table of Mr Jaikishen Sharma developed some malfunctioning. Though he was handed over a hand mike, Mr Sharma alleged that the malfunctioning of the mike was a deliberate ploy by the ruling BJP in MCD to stifle the voice of the opposition.
In anger, Mr Sharma hurled the hand mike on the electrician who had given it to him.
This caused a furore in the House with BJP members protesting Jaikishen Sharma's action. Infact, Deputy Chairman of the Standing Committee Yogender Chandolia called in the police in the House which agitated the opposition. Amid the uproar, the House was adjourned for ten minutes.
Even after the house reassembled, the opposition continued with their noisy scenes persisting with their demand for Subhash Arya's resignation. Amid the furore, the agenda of the House was passed and the House adjourned.
Meanwhile the electrician has in a letter to the Additional Commissioner (Engineering) complained against the action of mr Jaikishen Sharma and denied that the malfunctioning of his mike was due to a problem in the wiring and not deliberate.
While the BJP criticised Mr Sharma's action saying that it was an expression of frustration by the Congress over its defeat in the MCD polls, Mr Sharma himself claimed that he had not hurled the mike at the employee but thrown it aside after it too refused to operate.
