New Delhi, Apr 4 (PTI) Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel today adjourned the House proceedings for half an hour as AAP legislators trooped into the Well, demanding BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa be suspended over his alleged casteist remarks.

Nitin Tyagi, the AAP’s MLA from Laxmi Nagar, demanded action against Sirsa. Other MLAs of the ruling party also supported Tyagi.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators trooped into the Well of the House, demanding the suspension of Sirsa, an MLA from the Rajouri Garden constituency.

The Speaker requested the legislators to go back to their seats, but when they did not relent, he adjourned the House proceedings for 30 minutes.

Yesterday, AAP legislators accused Sirsa of using “casteist remarks” in the House while participating in a discussion on “hardship” being faced by the sanitation workers of municipal corporations.
