Samajwadi Party Thursday demanded immediate withdrawal of cases against party workers, who had protested against their national president Akhilesh Yadav being stopped from proceeding to Allahabad, forcing adjournment of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.
"The right to protest has been enshrined in the Constitution. The partymen were protesting against humiliation of their leader...we are not enemies... you can also be on this side in the future," Chaudhary said.
"SP activist slapped policemen in uniform and police used slight force to control the situation which could otherwise have turned bad," Khanna said, adding action has been taken as per rules and no one taking law in his hand would be allowed to go scot free.
As the Speaker took up the next issue on the agenda, SP workers created uproar, leading to adjournment of the House for 40 minutes.
