Commotion erupted as soon as the proceedings started on the third day of the monsoon session that was set to continue till July 31.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislators came to the assembly in blue apron which read: “Shivraj Singh Chouhan must quit.”

BSP and Congress legislators started sloganeering as the proceedings began. They also moved towards the speaker shouting slogans, triggering heated exchanges between the treasury and opposition benches.

Speaker Sita Sharan Sharma adjourned the house for 10 minutes. But as the opposition remained aggressive when the assembly reassembled, he adjourned it again at 11.30 a.m. — and finally indefinitely.

In a shocking incident, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Madhya Pradesh asked parents of a minor rape victim to express gratitude to the local MP for visiting them.

Sudarshan Gupta, a BJP legislator, was caught on camera in Indore’s MY Hospital, asking the victim’s kin to thank his party MP Sudhir Gupta for visiting them at the hospital to inquire about the minor girl’s condition. Immediately, the parents of the victim were seen nodding and folding their hands before Sudhir. “Say thank you to the MP (Sudhir Gupta). he has travelled only to meet you (Sansad ji ko dhanyavad boliye, special aapke liye aaye hain)”

The eight-year-old girl was abducted from her school in Hafiz Colony here and allegedly gang-raped at her house in Mandsaur three days ago. The girl’s condition is “continuously improving” and she may be discharged in about two weeks, a senior medical official said on Saturday.
