The nine-member ethics committee of the Delhi Assembly has recommended the expulsion of BJP MLA OP Sharma in connection with Alka Lamba case.
New Delhi: The nine-member ethics committee of the Delhi Assembly has recommended the expulsion of BJP MLA OP Sharma in connection with Alka Lamba case.
Sharma was suspended for the winter session of the house for using objectionable language against AAP MLA Alka Lamba in December last year.
Lamba has filed a complained against the BJP MLA for using derogatory language against her.
Sharma has accused Lamba of being a drug addict. Sharma had also said that AAP was a party of lumpen elements and questioned as to who had given Lamba the right to go on a anti-narcotics drive.
"People have said that Lamba is spotted here in the wee hours of the night and I don't think a person who supports drug eradication would come there at that time, between 1 am to 4 pm. It apparently shows she is an addict herself. I am not giving any anti-women remark. I respect women but if you try to portray Phoolan Devi as a mascot of women power then it won't work. She is a drug addict who under the effect of drugs had turned violent," had said Sharma.
Sharma's comment was followed by a huge ruckus in the Assembly over the issue. The matter was handed over to the ethics committee of the Delhi Assembly which today recommended the expulsion of Sharma.
