Chandigarh: A day after they were suspended for remainder of the session from the Haryana Assembly, main Opposition INLD members on Wednesday held a mock session outside the House here.

The INLD members, who were later joined by party chief and former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, wore black bands around their arms to protest against their suspension.

Mohammed Illyas was elected "Speaker" of the mock assembly.

Drawing curious onlookers, the INLD legislators lashed out at the state government accusing it of favouring builders and realtors.

They also alleged the law and order had deteriorated in the state.

Chautala said the state government had hatched a conspiracy to keep them out of the session as they wanted no opposition at the time of passage of the Haryana Ceiling on Land Holdings (Amendment) Bill, 2011.

Referring to the formation of a House Committee to look into alleged violations by the Chautala family trusts, he said the government was targeting its political opponents to divert attention of the people from its own failures.

Yesterday, the Speaker suspended INLD MLAs for the rest of the session after they disrupted proceedings demanding that a resolution be adopted to urge the Centre to allow passage of Jan Lokpal Bill.
