The Punjab Assembly Speaker on Friday suspended all Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) MLAs from the House for the rest of the Budget session after they repeatedly interrupted Chief Minister Amarinder Singh’s speech on the Governor’s address.
Marshals entered the Punjab Vidhan Sabha and physically removed the Opposition MLAs following their suspension. However, they squatted in the Well for a while and continued to shout slogans against the CM.
As they were later escorted out, the MLAs continued to shout slogans.
Speaker Rana K P Singh had adjourned the House twice and asked Akali Dal members not to disrupt the proceedings. When the House was adjourned, the Akalis sat on the floor of the House. The watch and ward staff then removed them from the House.
The session would continue till March 10.
