Dy Speaker orders seizure of two mobile phones

Deputy Speaker Sartaj Madni today ordered seizure of mobile telephones of two MLAs—Abdul Mujeed Wani and Choudhary Ramzan in the Legislative Assembly.

Mr Madni, who was in the Chair, first ordered seizure of Congress MLA and former Minister Abdul Mujeed Wani’s mobile phone as it was being used in the House.

Later, he also ordered seizure of NC MLA and former Minister Choudhary Ramzan’s mobile phone.

NPP MLA Balwant Singh Mankotia pointed out that there had been no order imposing ban on use of mobile telephones in the Assembly.

However, Mr Madni said there was already an order to this effect but the difference was that it hadn’t been enforced earlier.

Mr Wani said he was extremely sorry over the use of mobile phone in the House.
