Gandhinagar: The Gujarat Assembly was on Monday adjourned for an hour following slogan shouting by Congress members on the issue of dismissal of two BJP MLAs, accused of watching obscene pictures in the House.

Congress MLAs entered the House wearing black banner, on
which it was written `remove those watching obscene pictures in
the Assembly`.

After entering the House they started sloganeering
demanding the removal of BJP MLAs Shankar Chaudhary and Jetha
Bharwad.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Pradeepsinh
Jadeja raised objections to Congress MLAs act of displaying
banner in the House.

Speaker Ganpat Vasava also told Congress members that
they cannot demonstrate banners in the Assembly.

However, the Congress stayed put, following which the
Speaker adjourned the house for an hour.

BJP MLAs Shankar Chaudhary and Jetha Bharwad are under
scanner for allegedly watching obscene pictures during the
House proceedings last week.

The Speaker had ordered a probe by the privilege
committee of the House and seized the I-Pad of the MLA and
sent it for forensic examination.

Forensic report had given clean chit to both the MLAs
saying that they were not watching obscene pictures.

Congress has been disrupting the proceedings of the
house for the last three working days demanding removal of the
both the `tainted` MLAs.

All the Congress members were suspended from the House
three times in the last three days.
