Watch What happened with AAP MLA Ruby in Vidhan Sabha

By 23rd June 2017 0 Comments


In an unprecedented step, the Punjab Speaker today ordered that all 19 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs be forcibly evicted from the Vidhan Sabha. Marshals then physically lifted the MLAs, holding them by their arms and legs, causing injuries to some. Two legislators were hospitalised, even as women MLAs claimed they were inappropriately handled.

AAP’s Sarbjit Kaur Manuke and Baljinder Kaur fainted. It took 10 women constables to remove Baljinder Kaur as she firmly clutched on to a desk which fell when she was finally pulled away. Manuke shrieked in pain as she was pulled by the arm yet to heal after a fracture. Akali MLA Pawan Tinu too was pushed around. Such was the scale of force used against MLAs, perhaps for the first time in the history of the House, that they had to be taken away on stretchers. Akali members walked out, protesting against the “murder of democracy”. Majithia carried the turban of AAP’s Bilaspur to the Sector 16 General Hospital. Sukhbir and Majithia left with AAP’s Phoolka, Sandhu and Arora in their car. Later, former CM Parkash Singh Badal visited the injured MLAs.
