WHO SAID WHAT?

JAMMU, Mar 19: The ugly spar in the Legislative Assembly today evoked strong reactions from both the sides- inside the House as well as outside.

Following is glimpse of eclectic mix of allegations and counter-allegations exchanged between the members of ruling combine and opposition.

MINISTER FOR SOCIAL WELFARE SAKINA ITOO: I had only objected to the thumping of tables by him (Jugal Kishore Sharma). I just told him that he should desist from creating a scene like every day.

I want to ask the BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, who off and on cries in the Parliament while narrating the plight of women and pleading their cause, what’s her take on her party’s state president’s behaviour.

I want to ask her- her party’s state president is behaving in this manner with a female member of the House, does she not feel bad now.

Had the ministers not saved me, he would have pounced on me.

MLA NAGROTA JUGAL KISHORE SHARMA: I did not try to assault her as is being alleged. It was just that her interruption and her remark drawing parallel between me and Abdul Rashid Engineer made me agitated. She in fact used unparliamentary language against me.

My suspension is nothing but it reveals a conspiracy against BJP. They want to silence our voice. They want to run the House without opposition.

MLC DEVENDER RANA: How can the leaders, who vouch for reservation of women in the legislature and Parliament, apart from boasting to be the custodians of high glorious ethos, culture and tradition of Jammu region can stoop so low where they can not distinguish between right and wrong. Women, who deserve respect in a civilized society can not be belittled the way Jugal Kishore Sharma did.

MLA BHARAT BHUSHAN BODHI: Whatever incident occurred in our absence, if that happened (misbehavious with the female member), that is condemnable.

He made this statement inside the House as he along with his other four colleagues (Chaman group) walked inside the House during debate on demands for grants for the R&B department. The statement was welcomed by Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs.

Interestingly, the members of this group had walked out of the House in support of Jugal earlier and MLA Basohli Jagdish Raj Sapolia, while talking to media outside, said they would boycott the proceedings for the day in his support.

MLA HARSH DEV SINGH: It was nothing but the frustration of an MLA as the government was not ready to listen to the public issues and ignoring their problems.

They wanted to stifle the voice of opposition. We’ve decided to boycott the proceedings for the day in his support.

Later during debate however Panthers too walked inside the House.

About change of decision, Harsh told that they decided to go inside after the rebel group of BJP walked inside and the unity was broken.

“Later the Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs and others too had come to us to cajole us, hence the change of decision. Had we not attended the proceedings, the purpose of coalition would have been served as it wanted to run the House without opposition.”
