Uproar in Assembly, BJP MLA suspended


There seems to be no let up on the floor for the four consecutive day on Friday. The situation took a grim turn when speaker Tanka Bahadur Rai suspended Dibrugarh MLA Prasanta Phukan till Monday for beating cymbal on the floor at the height of protest against failure to sack the ministers involved in the Dima Hasao scam.


Phukan said that the speaker has done all these only to appease his party. But in the same breath he pledged to go to any extent for the interest of the people.AGP president Chandra Mohan Patowary and opposition leader Prafulla kumar Mahanta called the suspension a partial.
