Protestors, most of them women, raised slogans against the BJP MLA, saying they would not 'tolerate the insult of woman'. Delhi Assembly Speaker Ramniwas Goel yesterday suspended Sharma till tomorrow for using derogatory language against the Chandani Chowk MLA during a discussion on night shelters.

"Suspension is not enough. Sharma made derogatory remarks against a woman MLA and strict action needs to be taken against him," said an AAP woman worker.

In view of the protest, police erected barricades outside Sharma's residence to prevent protestors. "BJP MLA has no right to continue as a legislator. He should be suspended from the Delhi Assembly," cited another AAP woman worker.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal yesterday expressed his shock over the comments and hoped BJP would take action against him.
