BJP leaders walked-out of the house protesting against the manner in which proceedings were held in the Maharashtra assembly.
Former BJP Leader Devendra Fadanvis while speaking to media after the house said that constitutional norms and rules were violated Saturday morning while conducting the Trust Vote in the Maharashtra Assembly.
