Political slugfest seems to have become a daily affair in Punjab. Noisy scenes were witnessed in the state Assembly on Friday as Independent MLA Simarjit Singh Bains and Balwinder Singh Bains, key aides of Navjot Singh Sidhu, were thrown out of the House following Speaker Charanjit Singh Atwal’s order, a report said. Bains had apparently got aggressive over not being allowed to speak on the issue of Punjab releasing free water to Rajasthan and defied the Speaker’s order. Following this, the Speaker told the watch and ward staff to remove Bains, who is part of the newly launched political outfit Awaaz-e-Punjab, from the House. His elder brother, Balwinder Singh Bains, also joined him in the protest, it said.

Bains had apparently wanted to speak on the issue of Punjab not demanding the bill for releasing water to Rajasthan but was denied permission. He also tried to defy the Speaker’s order.

The Bains brothers have asked the Punjab government to seek Rs 16 lakh crore from Rajasthan as the water bill.
