Chandigarh, March 5

A high drama was witnessed in the Punjab Assembly on Friday after Speaker Rana KP Singh suspended all Akali Dal MLAs and ordered them to stay out of the House for the remaining part of the Budget Session.

The House was adjourned soon after the ruckus.

The Akali Dal MLAs, however, refused to go out and sat in the Well of the House and staged a protest.

The police personnel had to plead with them to leave the House, but the MLAs refused to move and continued to raise slogans.

The police had to then lift the Akali MLAs and lead them out of the House.

Pawan Kumar Tinu was pushed out of the House by the police, after he again tried to enter the Vidhan Sabha.

Earlier in the day, Bholath MLA and former Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Khaira raised the issue of alleged police brutality against one farmer protestor, Ranjit Singh, at Singhu border.

He alleged that he was picked from the camp of farmers and taken into custody with the alleged help of the RSS and the BJP men.

Meanwhile, Akali MLAs raised slogans during Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh's reply on the Governor's address and staged a walkout. 

Later, AAP MLAs, also, joined them.  

All MLAs stormed the Well of the House and which the House was adjourned for 15 minutes.  

AAP MLAs also staged a walkout of the House, alleging connivance of the Punjab Government in the passing of the three farm laws.
