New Delhi: TMC and TDP MPs got engaged in an ugly scuffle inside Parliament complex on Tuesday, over the issue of office space.
As per reports, MPs belonging to the Trinamool Congress removed the nameplates of Telegu Desam Party parliamentarians from Room No 5 on the ground floor of the circular building in Parliament. They later forcibly occupied the room.
The TMC MPs claimed that the room had been allotted to their party and hence, their action was justified.
