Congress, AAP protest in Lok Sabha over Moga molestation incident

Raising the issue in the Zero Hour, Ravneet Singh Bittu (Congress) demanded that the transport company running the bus should be suspended like Uber was in Delhi and took a swipe at Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who was present and whose family runs the service in Punjab.

Bhagwant Mann (AAP) also spoke on the matter but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan disallowed him after he too mentioned Kaur's name.

"Don't do politics over such a incident. This is very wrong. Where are you taking this issue?" the Speaker told Bittu when he attacked the ruling clan in the state.

"You want to do politics or you are with the girl," Mahajan said, pulling up Mann, who came into the Well in protest.

Bittu said Kaur had jumped to the state government's defence on Wednesday when Rahul Gandhi raised the issue of farmers and she should speak on this "shameful" issue as well.   

The Lower House had earlier in the day seen protests from Congress and AAP over the incident in Moga area.

Members of both the parties from Punjab stormed the Well of the House denouncing the Akali Dal-BJP government in the state over the law and order situation.
