Ground Report | New Delhi: 12 BJP MLAs; On Monday, 12 MLAs of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party were suspended from the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly for one year. These MLAs are accused of ‘behaving badly’ with the presiding officer Bhaskar Jadhav in the speaker’s chamber.

Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Devendra Fadnavis termed the ruling party’s allegations against the party MLAs as false and said that the way Bhaskar Jadhav is describing the incident is “one-sided”.

However, Bhaskar Jadhav has demanded an inquiry into the allegations that Shiv Sena members and he himself had made unparliamentary remarks. He said that he is ready to face any punishment if these allegations are proved to be true.

Opposing this decision, BJP MLAs led by Devendra Fadnavis said that they would boycott the proceedings of the House.

Fadnavis said, “This is a false allegation. We had exposed the lies of the state government on the issue of OBC quota in local bodies, so they want to reduce the number of opposition members in the House.”
