Bhopal: The House witnessed ruckus on Wednesday over strike of high court lawyers in Indore for the last 12 days.  MLA Jitu Patwari, raising the issue during zero hour, demanded a debate on the strike. Patwari said the strike was causing inconvenience to the people and he sought adjournment of the House on this issue. Other MLAs of the Opposition asked Home Minister Babulal Gaur to give a statement on the issue.  Gaur, however, did not react, leading to angry protests by the MLAs who entered the Well of the House and raised slogans. The MLAs also demanded to take action against Tukoganj town inspector for misbehaving with the lawyers.  BJP MLA Manoj Patel said the said town inspector (TI) has been line attached. The agitating MLAs got pacified when Parliamentary Affairs minister Narottam Mishra assured of sending an officer from Bhopal to sort out the matter.
