BJP MLA OP Sharma may lose his post

NewDelhi/Nagpur: The Ethics Committee of Delhi Assembly has recommended BJP MLA OP Sharma’s expulsion from the house for using derogatory language against AAP MLA Alka Lamba.

The 10-member Ethics Committee of Delhi Assembly has held Sharma guilty of being habitual offender. The committee had recommended Sharma’s expulsion from the house to the Speaker. Committee in various meeting had given Sharma an opportunity to explain the incident and apologise to Lamba. However, Sharma failed to do.

The committee, in its report, has concluded that Sharma is a habitual offender of making unparliamentary remarks especially against fellow women MLAs.

The Delhi Assembly witnessed clashes between the AAP and BJP lawmakers in November, 2015 after reports claimed that OP Sharma had called AAP MLA Alka Lamba things like baazaaru aurat and somebody who roams around all night.

Sharma, however, had denied the charges. “I never abused Alka Lamba. AAP is free to file an FIR against me. Infact, it was Lamba who tried to slap me and abused me. CCTV footage will reveal the truth,” Sharma had told media.

Sharma was even suspended from the Assembly for a few days for his reported foul language against Lamba.

Last week, Sharma was caught on camera thrashing a Left activist inside the Patiala House court premises when JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar was being taken inside the courtroom for a hearing of a sedition case filed against him. The Vishwas Nagar MLA was arrested yesterday but released on bail.
