SP's Yashveer Singh snatches quota bill from Narayanasamy in Lok Sabha, Sonia Gandhi rushes to rescue, heckled

V Narayanasamy

BSP supremo Mayawati, an arch detractor of Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh politics, has been seeking to take credit for the passage of the bill in the Rajya Sabha.

Terming the incident as "very deplorable and extremely unfortunate", Kamal Nath later told reporters, "We will urge the Speaker to condemn it and take action against the member.

"The bill will be taken up tomorrow when the House meets," he said, maintaining that such an act "frustrates Parliamentary democracy".

Nath said since Gandhi was closest to the spot where the snatching incident occurred, she asked the member to return the papers he had snatched.

"In democracy, if you are against something, you vote against it. But you can't do this. I condemn it. If they show such an attitude, there is no need for democracy or Parliament or the media," the minister said.
