BJP MLA Vijendra Gupta moves HC challenging his suspension from Delhi Assembly

New Delhi, March 23 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vijender Gupta on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court against Legislative Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel's decision to suspend him for a year for allegedly interfering in the Assembly proceedings and 'disrupting the House'. A division bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Sachin Datta was hearing the MLA' plea, which was mentioned by senior advocate Jayant Mehta. The bench allowed an urgent hearing of the matter for Friday. During the sitting, Gupta had proposed a breach of privilege motion against Finance Minister Kailash Gahlot and Environment Minister Gopal Rai for leaking Delhi budget details on social media. Goel had responded: "As per rules, such a notice needs to be given three hours before. You are saying that it should be taken up for discussion today itself. It seems the aim is to create a ruckus and waste the time of the House." The Speaker also issued a strict warning to Gupta. The notice given by him mentioned the leaking of details of the 'Outcome Budget', which was tabled in the Assembly on Monday, but while speaking in the House, he spoke about the 2023-24 Budget that is to be tabled. Gupta brought up the matter once more when the House reconvened at 2 p.m., and AAP MLA Sanjeev Jha then urged that he be expelled for a year. The motion was passed by the House, with Goel saying that Gupta was suspended from the Delhi Assembly proceedings till the next Budget session. /IANS
