BJP legislators denied discussion on skyrocketing onion prices, stage walkout of Delhi Assembly

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta was marshalled out of the House and his three colleagues staged a walkout after their request for a discussion on the steep increase in onion prices was turned down by the Speaker on Tuesday.

Speaker Ram Niwas Goel accused BJP leader Gupta of allowing a group of 10-15 women inside the assembly to protest against dirty water allegedly being supplied in the national capital, which led to a heated argument between the ruling and opposition members.

Goel said Gupta insulted the dignity of the House and ordered that he be marshalled out when he was adamant to have a discussion on onion price rise.
