MLCs cannot stage dharna, meet media at Council portico

Press Trust of India  |  Patna 

Legislative Council Chairman Awadhesh Naraian Singh today issued a directive to members not to stage dharna, protest and interaction with media persons in the Council's portico.

"All the members of the House have been informed through a letter in this regard," Singh told PTI.



Media persons have also been informed about this during a meeting with Press Advisory Committee.

'Lakshman Rekha' in the form of 'red' and 'white' strips already exist in the portico where members cannot give interview to media persons, stage dharna or protest, the Chairman said.

If any member violates the directive, the matter would be referred to the 'ethics committee' of the House, he said while cautioning them that members can be disqualified if they were found violating the rule.

On the lines of the Assembly, a separate temporary media enclosure would be made at the Council premises where members can talk to media persons.

Like the Assembly, the Legislative Council could not transact any business in both pre-and post-lunch session with ruling as well opposition members trooping into well in support of their varied demands.

Members of both ruling and opposition parties also staged dharna, protest and shouted slogans at the Council's portico and talked to media persons.
