Protests in the Indian Parliament are almost an every-day affair now. It is almost a dream to expect our political leaders to ever let a session go by smoothly with them giving each other time to speak and voice their opinions.
However, what happened in the Lok Sabha yesterday proved that there is no difference between a Parliament session in India and a fist-fight on the road.
It is a day which will go down as one of the worst days in Indian Parliament history, where MPs used pepper spray, broken glass and stationery items to hurt each other. The protest against the controversial Telangana Bill turned ugly the moment Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde tabled the bill in the Lok Sabha session.
Angry MPs from the Seemandhra region rushed to the well of the House shouting slogans. Industrialist and suspended Congress MP L Rajagopal, from Vijayawada, sprayed pepper spray in the House causing burning sensations to several MPs and many started coughing and sneezing.
Shockingly, we are not the only ones who fight like cats and dogs during a Parliament session. Political leaders in countries like Taiwan, Hong Kong, Turkey and many more have also written history with some very ugly and nasty fights during Parliament sessions. However, this is not something one should take pride in. Take a look at these 20 photos of notorious fights that have occurred in other Parliaments. It'll make you wonder about what the world has come to.
