Mumbai, Jul 26: Seeking speedy execution of 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab, Opposition Shiv Sena-BJP MLAs today created noisy scenes within and outside the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.
As soon as the House began its proceedings today, the slogan shouting opposition MLAs disrupted the Question Hour, demanding that Kasab be hanged as soon as possible. “Hang Kasab promptly or else those in government must vacate their chairs,” they said.
Speaker Dilip Walse Patil adjourned the House for ten minutes amid noisy scenes.
Opposition legislators also staged noisy protests outside the Vidhan Bhawan building, seeking speedy implementation of the court order sentencing Kasab to death.
“We fail to understand the reason for delay in hanging the terrorist,” Leader of Opposition Eknath Khadse said.
The House later took up discussion on the July 13 Mumbai serial blasts which claimed 24 lives. Starting the debate, Khadse said that unlike the 26/11 terror attacks when the Chief Minister and Home Minister resigned, this time, no one has accepted the responsibility.
“The government is taking the issue very lightly,” the BJP leader said. PTI
