Chandigarh, March 4

Unruly scenes were witnessed in the Punjab Assembly on Monday after Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann engaged in a heated argument with Congress MLA and Leader of Opposition Partap Bajwa over seat-sharing arrangements ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

The chief minister said Bajwa should tell the party leadership, which includes Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, not to bother giving AAP the Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, Haryana or Gujarat as well.

“Who does Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi sit with? With me. Have you ever sat with them? On the one hand, you are making agreements (on seat-sharing) with us. Go and tell them (Sonia and Rahul Gandhi) not to give Kurukshetra, Delhi and Gujarat (Lok Sabha) seats to us..."

Even after the House was adjourned, the members of the ruling AAP rushed towards the opposition benches after Bajwa made some remark and the verbal exchange stopped short of turning physical.

The heated exchanges between some of AAP MLAs and the Congress legislators continued even as some MLAs from both parties tried to intervene.
