New Delhi: The echo of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s controversial vote appeal on Wednesday was heard in the Lok Sabha on Friday.
In a video, Adityanath had said the Uttar Pradesh would turn into “Kerala, Bengal or Kerala” if BJP did not return to power.
The comment was met with severe criticism not just from leaders of these states, but even others.
On Friday, Congress MP TM Prathapan gave an adjournment notice to discuss the matter. Later, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury raised the matter when the House reconvened in the afternoon.
However, Speaker Om Birla refused to take up the matter at that moment, saying that it could be raised after Question Hour.
When he refused to allow the discussion, the Opposition MPs walked out of the House.
These included Congress, DMK, Left, RSP and, later, TMC leaders.
Friday was the last day of the first part of the Budget session in the Parliament. The second part will begin on March 14.
