JAIPUR: The assembly on Wednesday revoked the weeklong suspension of BJP MLA Madan Dilawar.
The legislator was suspended for ‘inappropriate’ behaviour over phone-tapping row in the assembly on Tuesday.
Parliamentary affairs minister Shanti Dhariwal moved a motion revoking suspension on the request of speaker C P Joshi after the Opposition leader sought pardon during Zero Hour.
Joshi said the Opposition leader did not apologise for the unsavoury incident. But he relented and said “I apologise for the undesirable behaviour” and asked the parliamentary affairs minister to move the motion. Dhariwal said the suspended member is a habitual offender.
However, the minister said, “With a heavy heart, I am obliging the orders of the speaker.” He, however, said the member be allowed in the House only after his reply on the phone-tapping issue as he might again create trouble. Dilawar returned to the House after the minister’s reply.
