Raj Babbar was allegedly injured in police action during villagers protest in UP.
Actor and lawmaker Raj Babbar was allegedly injured in police action against villagers protesting demolition of their houses in the Ambedkar Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh. Pramod Tiwari of Congress said force was used against the villagers protesting against demolition. Raj Babbar, he said, was injured and is unable to attend the proceedings in Parliament.
Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien said if the member has a complaint, he can raise it and give a privilege notice. Mr Tiwari was joined by other Congress members in raising the issue of the safety and security of Mr Babbar, who is sitting on dharna at the protest site.
Mr Kurien asked them if the lawmaker was being prevented from attending Parliament. When they replied in negative, he said the notice is not admitted. Finance Minister and Leader of the House Arun Jaitley said Mr Babbar cannot be present at both the places -- the dharna site and Parliament at the same time and he has to decide where he wants to be.
