Bihar Legislative Assembly today witnessed unruly scenes when an Independent MLA tore mikes and threw chairs in the House to press for her demand for imposition of prohibition on liquor in the state prompting Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary to suspend her till tomorrow.
As soon as opposition BJP MLAs staged a walk out from the Assembly protesting against deteriorating law and order situation in Bihar, Jyoti Rashmi trooped in the Well and demanded she be allowed to raise the issue of prohibition, which the Speaker disallowed.
The MLA from Dehri then lost her cool and threw down her headgear, overturned chairs and tables before tearing down five mikes from the seats of ruling JD(U) MLAs before Chaudhary called women marshals who evicted her out of the House.
Soon after her removal from the House, state Parliamentary Affairs minister Shrawan Kumar stood up to condemn the behaviour of the MLA saying her conduct was unbecoming in Parliamentary Democracy and its traditions.
He also moved a censure motion for her suspension from the House till tomorrow and her removal from all committees in which she was a member.
Admitting Kumar's censure motion, the Speaker ruled the errand member would be suspended from the House till tomorrow and would be removed from all committees of which she was a member.
Later speaking to reporters, Rashmi took a dim view of her suspension and said she was raising an issue (prohibition) which was in the interest of everybody, particularly the women.
The independent MLA has been consistently raising the prohibition demand and was suspended on a couple of occasions earlier also.
