ANI  |  Politics 

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vijendra Gupta was suspended on Friday from the remaining part of the Session for defying the directions of the Chair in the Delhi Assembly.

The ruckus had started in the house after BJP MLA OP Sharma wanted a motion of thanks on the removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa was also marshalled out for a day for disrupting the proceedings of the House.

MLAs OP Sharma and Jagdish Pradhan walked out of the assembly in protest.

After the suspension, Vijender Gupta, OP Sharma, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, and Jagdish Pradhan sat on a dharna outside the chamber of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Vijender Gupta said that Kejriwal got him suspended for the entire session for wanting to bring a resolution in the Assembly to congratulate all Indians on the abrogation of Article - 370.
