New Delhi: High drama was witnessed in Delhi Assembly on Wednesday after Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said BJP ideology led to the demolition of Babri Masjid, leading to vociferous protests by the opposition MLAs and an adjournment for a brief period.

The Chief Minister's remark came when she was replying to a no-confidence motion moved by opposition BJP alleging "complete misrule", "massive corruption" and "total insensitivity" towards peoples' problems.

BJP MLAs were on their feet soon vigorously protesting against Dikshit who said the ideology of BJP led to the Babri Masjid demolition. They shouted slogans against Dikshit and levelled allegations against her which were expunged from records.

Adding more drama, Matia Mahal MLA Shoaib Iqbal, who joined Congress during the Lok Sabha elections this year, jumped on to the table and blamed the ruling Congress for the plight of Muslims.

Speaker Yoganand Shastri then asked marshalls to remove Iqbal. However, BJP MLAs surrounded Iqbal and did not allow security personnel to take him away.

As the sloganeering continued, Shastri adjourned the House for ten minutes.
