As expected the Akali legislators on Thursday again raised the issue of alleged desecration of turban that took place in the Vidhan Sabha yesterday.
They started raising slogans as soon as the session began with question hour today.
AAP legislators also joined the Akalis in protest.
Interestingly, all the Akali legislators came to Vidhan Sabha wearing black robes as a mark of protest.
The Akali Dal legislators, led by party president Sukhbir Singh Badal, wore black tunics on top of their clothes as a mark of protest against Thursday’s incidents of manhandling of legislators.

The Akali Dal legislators raised slogans against the Speaker and the Congress government.

Sukhbir called upon chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh to dismiss the Speaker and apologise to the Sikh community for the turban-tossing incidents.
