Ranchi, Mar 5 : On the fifth day of the ongoing budget session of the Jharkhand assembly, the members of the BJP created a furore over the comments of Congress MLA Irfan Ansari following which the house was adjourned till lunch break.
As soon as the house assembled for the day, the BJP MLAs in a repeat of action for the last four days immediately started slogan shouting in support of their demands including demanding chair of leader of opposition for Babulal Marandi and also called for action against Congress party's Jamtara MLA Irfan Ansari for making use of foul language against the legislators of the opposition.
Speaker Ravindra Nath Mahto said that if the MLAs wanted to make a mockery of the Assembly then they should feel free to do so. He said that the BJP was the second largest party in the assembly and also the main opposition party inside the house therefore it should maintain the decorum and it is not like that they can come with 'Dhol and Manjera' and protest inside the house. He asked the MLAs as if they have also decided that they would not allow the house to function for the next three years like it happened in the previous tenure then they should tell the house.
On Wednesday, Irfan Ansari who is known for his controversial statements had accused the MLAs of the opposition of 'barking like dogs' inside the house while interacting with media outside the house. The Speaker urged the MLAs not to waste their time on unnecessary talks and pointed that if comments have been made outside the house then there was no point discussing the issue inside and asked the MLAs to return back to their seats and allow the question hour to commence.
Mandar MLA Bandhu Bandhu Tirkey and Poriyahaat MLA Pradeep Yadav said it was not correct on part of the BJP MLAs to bring talks which have taken place outside the house and disturb the proceedings following which once again the BJP MLAs stormed into the well of the house. (UNI)
