The investigation is going in this case

  • The MLAs from both the sides again trooped into the Well when the proceedings resumed.Earlier, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tried to reply to Gupta over the death of workers but he could not continue as the House was adjourned. Five men had gone down to clean the tank in a household in the area but did not come out for long. The other BJP MLA Jagdish Pradhan returned to his seat. Water Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam said that the government is working on new parameters so that there is no such incident in future. No one will be spared," Gautam said.Later, Sirsa too was removed by the marshals as he continued to protest. When the House met again, Sisodia said that there is a standing instruction that sewage should be cleaned mechanically, but the contractor allowed manual cleaning of the sewers.

    If anyone is found guilty, strict action will be taken," Sisodia had said. The ruling party MLAs returned but the BJP legislators refused to budge.Sisodia said that the government will provide job of civil defence volunteers to one family member of sanitation workers who had died in the incident. The Speaker then asked the marshals to escort Gupta out and he was removed forcibly. The speaker then adjourned the House for 30 minutes. The Speaker then asked the MLAs to go back to their seats."The government has announced Rs 10 lakh each to the kin of sanitation workers who had died while cleaning sewers. The BJP has four MLAs in the 70 member Assembly."Under new parameters (to clean sewer), the responsibility of officers and contractors will be fixed.

    As the House met after the first adjournment, Sirsa and Gupta again came into the well of the House demanding a discussion on the sanitation issue and refused to return to their seats when asked by Speaker Ram Nivas Goel.The AAP MLAs too followed suit and shouted anti-BJP slogans. Its lawmaker O P Sharma was not present as he was earlier suspended for two sessions. The investigation is going in this case. We are investigating the case.Three weeks ago, four sanitation workers died of suffocation while cleaning a septic tank in south Delhis wholesale waterproof nonwoven fabric Ghitorni area.Amid the din, the Speaker adjourned the House twice- first for 15 minutes and then 30 minutes.BJP MLAs Manjinder Singh Sirsa and Vijender Gupta were on Tuesday marshalled out of the Delhi Assembly after they entered the Well demanding a discussion on the death of four sanitation workers in the city.The four-day session of Delhi Assembly had a noisy start as the Opposition BJP raised the issue of sanitation workers while the slogan-shouting ruling AAP members targeted the BJP over the Chandigarh stalking incident in which the son of Haryana BJP chief is allegedly involved. We will ensure that there is no manual cleaning of sewer in the city, but if there is requirement of manual cleaning, a junior engineer will be on the spot.
