AAP MLAs on Wednesday raised the issue of alleged harassment of students at IP College in the Delhi Assembly and blamed the Lieutenant Governor for “poor” law and order situation in the national capital. Meanwhile, four BJP MLAs were marshalled out of the Assembly following arguments with Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on the issues to be taken up for discussion in the House.
AAP MLA Bhavna Gaur raised the matter of women security and law and order in view of the Tuesday’s incident at Indraprastha College for Women where several men scaled college walls and harassed students. The BJP members, however, wanted a discussion on the issue of corruption, including the now-repealed excise policy, but the Speaker did not allow it, saying it had already been discussed.
“We should be ashamed that men trespassed into women’s college and misbehaved with the students. This is a serious issue. Does women security not matter to you? The college is close to the Vidhan Sabha, the chief minister’s residence and right under the nose of the Raj Niwas,” he said. Goel requested BJP members to leave House if they did not want to participate in discussion on issue of women security and law and order in Delhi.
