Deputy Opposition Leader in Rajasthan Assembly Ramesh Meena claimed today that the legislators of his own Congress party were hand in glove with the state's BJP government, and said he will take it up with the party's state unit chief Sachin Pilot.
Meena said if Pilot does not listen to the issue raised by him, he will approach Congress chief Rahul Gandhi about it.
His comments came outside the House.
The Speaker refused Tiwari permission to speak. Tiwari said he cannot be denied his right to speak in a parliamentary democracy.
Deputy opposition leader Meena came in support of Tiwari and started to create an uproar.
Meanwhile, as Tiwari refused again to end his protest, the Speaker asked him to leave the House.
Shortly after Tiwari left the House, Meena also walked out of the House.
Angry that his party leaders did not support him in the House, he told reporters that other Congress MLAs were hand in glove with the BJP government. Tiwari said he will talk to Pilot about it and if he does not hear him, he will approach Rahul Gandhi.
On the other hand, Dudi said Congress MLAs were behaving as per the tradition of parliamentary democracy and whatever Meena has done in the House could be because of his personal issue.
