LUCKNOW: The Samajwadi Party (SP) on Saturday tweeted two purported video clips of BJP legislators inside the Assembly when the House proceedings were on, in which one can be seen playing an online card game and the other consuming ‘gutka’ (chewing tobacco) to attack the government for making a mockery of the institution and the democratic set-up in the state.
Claiming that the video clips were shot and released by BJP legislators themselves, the party leadership said the two videos explain how serious the government and its MLAs were to address the issues of the people in the assembly.
“Consuming ‘gutka’ is injurious to health – this was the message that a BJP legislator wanted to send out when he shot this video of his fellow BJP legislator and released it in public interest. BJP is heading towards internal reforms, possibly they need this the most,” tweeted SP chief Akhilesh Yadav along with the video clip of the MLA consuming gutka, crouching behind his desk in the assembly. The SP said the legislator in the video is a BJP MLA from Jhansi.
In a separate tweet, Akhilesh posted a video of a BJP MLA playing cards on his tab.
“The BJP legislator who has made this video and made it viral has done this in public interest. Now all eyes on the chief minister to see when he will initiate action against the MLAs,” he tweeted. The SP identified a BJP MLA from Mahoba and described the game that he was playing as ‘teen patti’.
Samajwadi Party national spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said the manner in which the BJP legislators are making a mockery of the institution that Vidhan Sabha is by consuming tobacco and playing card games, only projects the entire Assembly in bad light in the eyes of the people.
“People will think this is what the MLAs do in the Assembly where they are expected to take up issues and problems of the people. But the government appears least bothered about people’s problems and these two MLAs don’t paint a different picture either,” Chaudhary said, talking to TOI.
