11 Congress MLAs suspended on last day of Gujarat Assembly amid din - Gandhinagar News

When the house was discussing the amendment bill on Gujarat National Law University, a senior Congress leader demanded for a debate on OBC reservation in local bodies. Speaker Neemaben Acharya turned down the request saying that the party should have moved a request for it earlier. Since the house is in the middle of a discussion, a sudden debate was not possible, he asserted.

At this, 11 Congress MLAs rushed into the well demanding caste base census and OBC reservation in local bodies. They raised slogans against the government calling it anti-OBC.

When the din continued unabated, Law minister Rajendra Trivedi moved a resolution seeking suspension of the MLAs for "indiscipline", which was passed by voice vote.

Other Congress MLAs staged a walk-out in their support.
