LS adjourned briefly over assault on Sikh boy

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Aug 24 (UNI) Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee was forced to adjourn the proceedings of the house for five minutes today when senior Congress MP Madhusudan Mistry raised the issue of a Sikh student whose hair was cut forcibly at Jaipur in Rajasthan.

Mr Mistry, supported by his other Congress and UPA colleagues, wanted a statement from the Government in this regard.

He alleged that the incident only proved that minorities were not safe in the BJP-ruled States.

As this led to heated exchanges between the members of the ruling and Opposition benches, the Speaker adjourned the house for five minutes.

As soon as the house assembled to transact the day's business, the TRS members entered the well of the house and started raising slogans at which the Speaker requested them to go back to their respective seats and assured them to listen to their views and they returned back to their seats.

No sooner than the TRS members returned to their seats, the SP members entered the well of the House shouting slogans on the rise in the prices of essential commodities vis-a-vis the failure of the Government to check this trend. One of the senior SP member Mohan Singh pursuaded his colleagues to go back to their respective seats and the situation was brought under control.
