Ruckus in Gujarat Assembly as BJP, Congress MLAs exchange blows

Congress MLA Pratap Dudhat, who allegedly hit BJP member Jagdish Panchal with the microphone, and his colleague Amrish Der, who disobeyed speaker Rajendra Trivedi's orders, have been suspended for three years.

Senior Congress legislator Vikram Madam tried to raise a question and participate in the issue but was repeatedly shouted down by the members from treasury benches.

According to party sources, soon after the Speaker announced dismissal of Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and S A Sampath Kumar and suspension of 11 others, the Congress MLAs had a brainstorming meeting at the CLP meeting hall to decide their future course of action. "The CCTV footage will prove everything", said deputy chief minister Nitin Patel.

Rejecting the Opposition's arguments, Speaker Trivedi put the motion to vote.

In 2017, Bradham only allowed 0.62 yards per coverage snap and 13.6 coverage snaps per reception. Kendricks totaled 63 tackles between the regular season and the playoffs.

Unruly scenes were created in Gujarat assembly on Wednesday when members from both the parties beat each other with slaps, fisticuffs, kicks and abusive words.

Speaker Trivedi barred Madam from raising the point of order and asked him to take his seat nearly 26 times.

However, the ruling party leaders dismissed the Opposition leader's charges and alleged that Congress members indulged in violence in the House.

Madam, however, insisted that he would speak. Earlier this week, two Congress members were expelled from the Telangana Assembly for disrupting the Governor's speech. Dudhat even broke a microphone and hurled it towards Panchal.

Speaker Rajendra Trivedi suspended Dudhat for the rest of the session.

Dudhat was angry with Panchal for asking Congress MLAs to remain silent when the speaker was making his point. Following this, Congress legislators Ambrish Der and Virji Thumar rushed to the well and raised objection with the Speaker.

The marshals in the Assembly intervened and brought the situation under control. "The Congress MLA not only insulted the Speaker but also became violent in the House", Patel told reporters.

Later, in the lobby of the Assembly, Thakor allegedly tried to assault BJP MLA Harsh Sanghvi. "But the BJP MLAs should not have used unparliamentarily language in the first place", said Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor.
