New Delhi: Showing an inappropriate behaviour in the Lower House (Lower House) of the Parliament, Samajwadi Party’s (SP) Akshay Yadav on Thursday tore papers and threw it at Speaker Sumitra Mahajan during the House proceedings.
The incident took place when the Opposition, while it was protesting against the demonetisation issue, stormed into the well of the House and raised slogans asking for a discussion under Rule 56.
Speaker of the House, Sumitra Mahajan, however, went ahead with the question hour, but it was then when SP’s Akshay Yadav, who is a Member of Parliament from Firozabad, tore some papers and threw it at speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s podium, following which the House was adjourned.
However, after the House proceedings were resumed later, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan condemned Akshay Yadav’s behaviour and said, “Yeh uchit nahi hai,” and warned the SP leader.
After the incident, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar and Minister of State (MoS) Parliamentary Affairs SS Ahluwalia met Sumitra Mahajan.
Akshay Yadav is the son of Rajya Sabha MP Ram Gopal Yadav and nephew of SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav.
