NEW DELHI: BJP MLA O P Sharma on Tuesday broke the mike at his table on the last day of the Budget session of the Delhi Assembly alleging that it had been turned off.

An upset Sharma said he was not being allowed to speak in the assembly after the Speaker ordered that his mike be switched off. “Our mikes are switched off whenever we try to raise our question in the assembly. This is not acceptable,” Gupta said.

The BJP legislator walked out of the assembly after breaking the mike and returned after sometime. Another MLA from the same party, Vijender Gupta, was also reportedly found tearing off ‘VAT amendment’ papers in the assembly session.
