Bhopal: Main Opposition Congress today dubbed as "crocodile tears" rolling down the eyes of a ruling BJP MLA Lalita Yadav and MP Assembly Speaker Ishwardas Rohani in the House last evening, over an alleged 'indecent' remark by a Congress member against her.

Lalita, who is a House member from Chhattarpur had complained against the Congress member in the Assembly and also in Rohani's chamber yesterday, following which he also became 'emotional'.

She said that Congress MLAs had made 'objectionable remarks' when she was coming to the House.

However, Congress legislators including party MLA Kalpana Parulekar said that the issue was being blown out of proportion to hog limelight as nothing happening inside the House was being noticed by the people.

Congress MLAs wearing white coats highlighting various issues like power and water crisis, corruption, atrocities against women, law and order problems among others plaguing the state raised slogans like 'Ghariali ansoo bahana band karo' (stop shedding crocodile tears) to counter the BJP.

Following this, there were cries of "shame shame" from BJP members. Later, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan moved a censure resolution against the Congress members, which was passed by a voice vote.

Speaking to reporters, Parulekar questioned as to why the Speaker did he not cry when double-meaning remarks were passed in the House against women members.

"Why did he (Rohani) not react in the same manner when women MLAs Pushpa Bharti and Kalyani Pande were humiliated in the House earlier by Gopal Bhargava and Babulal Gaur and why did they not bring a censure motion at that time," she asked.
