INLD MLAs suspended from Haryana Assembly
Chandigarh: Twenty-nine opposition members of the Haryana Assembly were suspended Friday for the rest of the Monsoon session following an uproar over an alleged demand of bribe by a ruling Congress member.

BJP member Anil Vij was also suspended from the House after he raised the matter, saying it was a "serious corruption issue".
In protest, BJP and Haryana Janhit Congress members walked out of the House.
