Seeking action against PDP’ lawmaker and minister Imran Ansari for his ‘lynching’ remarks, National Conference provincial president and Nagrota legislator Devinder Singh Rana on Wednesday said the speaker should direct the Director General of Police to file and FIR against Ansari.

“If you will not do it, I will walk up to the Shaheed Ganj police station and do it. They can’t deny as this is a criminal case,” Rana said.

The opposition created ruckus and demanded that the speaker should listen to Rana and issue directions for the FIR.

Rana also pointed out that if the dignity of the house is to be maintained then action should be taken against the said minister.

“And if the government approves, then I salute you and the government and the house,” Rana added.

BJP president Sat Sharma said that by filing an FIR, opposition wants to show their ‘pedestrian thinking’ (Choti sooch).

“Yesterday we were also told that like Syama Prasad Mookherjee was ‘killed’ in Kashmir you will also be killed like that. Action should be taken against such statement too,” Sharma said.

Speaker Gupta however apologized and asked the members to restrain from calling each other names and threatening each other.
