Mumbai, Jul 15: BJP MLA Ram Kadam today said he has submitted a privilege notice against NCP legislator Jitendra Awhad for describing Legislative Assembly Speaker Haribhau Bagade as "Hitler" during a debate on television.
Kadam said Awhad made the remarks while participating in a TV news debate last night. "The post of Legislative Assembly Speaker is a revered post which needs to be respected.
Meanwhile, Awhad in a statement said he had made the 'Hitler' reference to the Speaker. "I am not saying that I did not make the remarks during a TV debate.
I cannot be a mute spectator to instances where democratic norms are muzzled. Even media is prevented from covering our protest in the Vidhan Bhavan premises," he charged.
