Gujarat: Three Congress MLAs suspended for creating ruckus in Assembly

Gujarat assembly house

Gandhinagar: Lawmakers in the Gujarat Assembly on Wednesday came to blows when Dalit leader Jignesh Mewani raised the matter of the deaths of two children in the Asaram ashram in 2008 in Sabarmati.

The proceedings in the House took a violent turn after Question Hour, when Congress MLA from Khambhalia, Vikram Maadam, sought to speak on the deaths of two children at Asaram's ashram in Ahmedabad.

At that time, Der asked the speaker to allow Madam to speak. Following this, Congress legislators Ambrish Der and Virji Thumar rushed to the well and raised objection with the Speaker.

This then led to two other MLAs - Harsh Sanghvi from the BJP and Balwantsinh from Congress - indulging in an aggressive verbal spat, following which sergeants pulled them aside.

As both Congress and BJP members started shouting, Dudhat rushed to the front while exchanging heated words with BJP MLA Jagdish Panchal.

BJP has registered an official complaint with the Assembly Speaker seeking disciplinary action against the Congress MLA for the assault. The Speaker then adjourned the House for 10 minutes.

Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel later told the media: "This is a shameful incident which has never happened in the history of Gujarat Assembly". Another MLA Baldevji Thakor, who allegedly punched his BJP rivals in the assembly lobby, has been suspended for a year. Later, Dudhat claimed he lost his cool after Panchal used unparliamentary language and invoked names of his mother and sister.

Speaker Rajendra Trivedi suspended Dudhat for the rest of the session. The entire Opposition staged a walkout in protest against the ruling, even as state Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki dubbed it "partisan, unparliamentary and undemocratic".

The Congress MLAs later met in the chamber of Leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani for almost an hour. "Our members were not allowed to speak in the House and when they tried, they were provoked by the ruling party members", said Leader of the Opposition Paresh Dhanani.

This also puts a question mark on voting by these three suspended legislators in the Rajya Sabha elections on March 23.
