Five BJP MLAs suspended

Editorial comments

  • Under the Trinamool Congress rule, the State’s law and order is in chaos and now the Legislative Assembly followed the same footsteps. This indicates that it is time to impose Presidential Rule. 
  • The people who elect those who are fighting in the Assembly are equally responsible for this.

Kolkata (Bengal) – BJP and Trinamool Congress MLAs clashed in the Bengal Legislative Assembly. Five BJP MLAs have been suspended in this case. The suspended BJP MLAs include Suvendu Adhikari, Manoj Tigga, Narahari Mahato, Shankar Ghosh, and Dipak Barman. The BJP alleged that the Manoj Tigga was being beaten up, while Trinamool Congress MLA Asit Mujumdar claimed that he was injured in the fight.

A video of the fight has been posted on social media. The MLAs are seen pushing each other and fighting. They are also seen tearing each other’s shirts. After this incident, BJP MLAs resigned. They came out of the House saying, “We were beaten by the ruling party MLAs in the seat while we were demanding a discussion on the Birbhum incident.” Ten people were burnt alive after a Trinamool Congress Panchayat member was killed in Birbhum.
