Rebel BJP MP and president of the newly floated Loktantra Suraksha Party Raj Kumar Saini on Friday demanded disqualification of two MLAs for flashing shoes at each other in the Assembly.

In a media interaction here, Saini said the conduct of Leader of Opposition Abhay Singh Chautala and senior Congress leader Karan Dalal was unbecoming of a public representative. He took a dig at former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda for justifying shoe flashing by Dalal.

“Hooda’s claim that only Abhay was responsible for the disgraceful situation as he instigated Dalal to take out his shoe actually reflects the autocratic mindset of politicians. The three MLAs deserve condemnation,” he said.

Saini said Abhay’s reported statement on television that he could have shot Dalal in the Assembly was very serious and the authorities should take serious note of it.

“Ahead of next year’s elections, the INLD is claiming to be working for the interests of socially underprivileged sections. The party leader’s misconduct in and outside the Assembly questions his leadership capabilities,” he said.

Saini said his party would challenge the Hooda family in Rohtak, their political bastion. “Our party will field a Dalit candidate against Hooda and I will contest against Deepender Singh Hooda,” he said.

Refusing to have a political alliance with the BJP or any other party, Saini said the INLD and BJP were equally responsible for not protecting rights of underprivileged communities.
