Cong stages walkout over Khan`s remarks on Tiwari
Lucknow: Congress MLAs today staged a walkout in Uttar Pradesh Vidhan Sabha protesting "indignified" remarks of state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mohammad Azam Khan on former Chief Minister N D Tiwari who is embroiled in a paternity suit.
Khan made the remark in the House when Congress member Pramod Tiwari asked the Samajwadi Party government in the state to launch a housing scheme for MLAs and journalists like the ones launched during the regimes of N D Tiwari and Veer Bahadur Singh in the 1980s.
In reply to Tiwari, Khan made a comment, which Congress members termed as "indignified" and demanded that they should not be put on record.
Pressing the demand, Congress members staged a walkout.
Later, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav requested Speaker Mata Prasad Pandey not to put the remarks on record.
