Paying no heed to the "advice" given to them by Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Rana KP Singh against attending the session, Aam Aadmi Party legislators, including Leader of the Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema, went to the Assembly wearing PPE kits. They were, however, turned away.

AAP's charges a bundle of lies

The allegations levelled by the Aam Aadmi Party are a bundle of lies. I had advised Harpal Cheema and Kultar Sandhwan not to attend the session. — Rana KP Singh, Speaker

"

Crying foul, the three party MLAs, Cheema, Saravjit Kaur Manuke and Meet Hayer, staged a dharna outside the main entrance of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, alleging that it was the democracy's darkest hour, where the Opposition party MLAs had been forcibly kept out of the Assembly as the government was finding it difficult to face their queries on public issues.

The MLAs later shifted their dharna to Punjab Bhawan and were joined by state party Chief Bhagwant Mann and in charge of Punjab affairs Jarnail Singh. The dharna was lifted after the session ended.

The AAP MLAs were advised to stay away last night (through a letter sent by the Secretary, Vidhan Sabha, Shashi Lakhanpal Misra) citing their contact with Manjit Singh Bilaspur, who had tested positive on Tuesday. However, when they reached the Vidhan Sabha, they were stopped at the entrance.
