Congress MLA suspended in Tripura House

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, June 11 � Tripura Assembly on Friday witnessed uproarious scenes after rejection of an adjournment motion moved by the Opposition prompting Speaker Ramendra Chandar Debnath to suspend Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman.

Leader of Opposition Ratan Lal Nath tried to bring an adjournment motion against RD Minister Jitendra Chowdhury for his alleged involvement in three scams � ginger, pineapple and corrugated sheets.

But Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath rejected the move of the opposition leader saying this was Budget session and there would be ample scope for the discussion on the issue. The opposition legislators got furious and started slogans accusing the RD Minister.

At one point of time, angry opposition MLAs rushed to the well and staged agitation in front of the Speaker. As the situation was going out of control, the Speaker adjourned the House just five minutes before lunch break.

When the House assembled again, the Speaker requested Finance Minister Badal Chowdhury to place the Budget for 2010-11 financial year and accordingly the Minister started his Budget speech amidst chaotic situation.

But opposition members were in no mood to hear the Budget speech and demanded either resignation of the Minister or CBI probe into the alleged scams. Suddenly, the Speaker suspended Congress MLA Roy Barman from the House for the day, which angered the opposition members.
