Cong MLA expelled from House

GUWAHATI: Assam Assembly Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami has expelled Congress legislator Sherman Ali for creating uproar on the floor on Friday. Ali, the legislator from Baghbar was taken out of the floor by the marshal after he refused to remain calm at the instance of the Speaker.

 

The uproar took place after he raised a question on the pathetic plights of roads and bridges in his constituency. On hearing the reply from PWD minister Parimal Suklavaidya, an unhappy Ali raised some objections and slammed the minister. Despite repeated requests from the chair, he was locked in a verbal dual with the minister. Amid din, the Speaker expelled Ali from the floor.
