Resolution condemning acts of mob violence in country passed
During a discussion over a resolution urging people to "uphold the Constitution in letter and in spirit", Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi goes abroad and hugs people who consume beef, but in India those who eat beef are being killed.
The Assembly condemned incidents of lynching in the name of 'Gau Raksha' and passed a resolution urging citizens to "not fall for vicious and divisive propaganda." A situation, however, turned bizarre when BJP legislator Manjinder Singh Sirsa started demanding a resolution on Jammu and Kashmir as being a "part of India". In response, Speaker Ram Niwas Goel criticised the Centre and the RSS, saying that they always claimed to take away Pakistan occupied Kashmir and give a befitting reply to China, but did nothing in this regard. "China has stopped our pilgrims to go Kailash and Manasarovar. What is the Centre doing now," the speaker asked Singh.
