Aam Aadmi Party legislator Sukhpal Singh Khaira was suspended from the Punjab assembly for the rest of the budget session after he uploaded a four-minute video of the ruckus in the House.
As question hour began, the Akali MLAs were on their feet raising slogans against the Congress for failing to keep its poll promises.
Speaker Rana KP Singh ordered marshals to seize Khaira’s mobile phone and named him twice, which means he was suspended for the session.
Parliamentary affairs and health minister Brahm Mohindra asked the Speaker to rein in the Akali MLAs.
“It’s a fight for grabbing headlines/opposition space between AAP/Akalis, trying to outdo each other wasting precious time of the House,” chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh tweeted.
“Akali legislators in their desperate bid for political survival are violating all legislative norms. Let them explain what they did in 10yrs,” he said.
The Congress MLAs, including Amarinder, stayed put when the House was adjourned for half an hour.
