Shimla, Mar 29 (PTI) Heated exchanges were witnessed in the Himachal Pradesh Assembly on Wednesday over the issue of stopping the honorarium of Loktantra Prahari or those who were jailed during the Emergency imposed by the Congress government.

Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur raised the issue through point of order after the Question Hour and asked when will the government restore their honorarium.

As the Speaker did not allow the Opposition to raise this issue, there was a ruckus in the House for some time. Thakur was later permitted by the Speaker to raise the matter.
