AAP’s Alka Lamba marshalled out of Delhi Assembly

New Delhi, Aug 23, 2019-

Hours after the Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on Friday marshalled out a BJP MLA from the Delhi Assembly and suspended another, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebel legislator Alka Lamba was also marshalled out of the House.

At the time of her ejection, Lamba, the MLA from Chandni Chowk, was criticising the Delhi government and alleged that at least two families had been forced to purchase medicines from private chemists while they were being treated at the capital’s government-run G.B. Pant Hospital.

Lamba, who is not on the same page as the party, said that while the Delhi government has been claiming that people in the city were being given free medical facilities and medicines, families, however, were being forced to take loans for treatment in government hospitals.

Lamba raised the issue in the Assembly as a Special Mention.

Responding to her claim, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said he would look into the matter, adding that the hospital in question is under heavy load of patients as it also caters to people from neighbouring Uttar Pardesh.

He said people have to wait in queue to get medicines, at times, for as long as six hours.

At this point, while the Speaker asked Lamba to conclude on the topic as the Minister had given his assurance on the matter, Lamba continued to raise the issue.

After requesting her several times to take her seat while she continued speaking, the Speaker ordered her to be marshalled out of the House untill the tea break.

AAP MLA Lamba has been vocal against her party since last year. She has also announced that she will contest the next Assembly polls as an independent candidate.

Earlier in the day, Goel suspended BJP MLA and Leader of Opposition, Vijender Gupta, for the duration of the session for using “unparliamentary language” in the House.

As soon as the session started, Gupta led fellow Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs O.P. Sharma, Jagdish Pradhan and Majinder Singh Sirsa in creating a ruckus in the House, demanding a discussion on the abrogation of the constitutional Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

While Gupta was suspended from the House, Sirsa was marshalled out.  (Agency)

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
