The fight broke out at House hearing room 028 among some of the leaders of the host communities


Although it was not clear what led to the fight, trouble started immediately hostcom was called by the Chairman of the Ad-hoc Committee to make their presentations.


The chairman has earlier said that after the Hostcom complete their presentation,the various host communities will be invited individually to make their presentations.


But they shouted him down with a shout of no, no, no.
