For the first time in its history, the Assam Assembly witnessed a bizarre incident where a section of the Assembly physically assaulted two MLAs during the one day session convened to pass the vote on account.
According to eyewitness firstly it was a mild tussle which later took the grim turn forcing the Assembly Speaker Tanka Bahadur Rai to step in. Two BPF legislators namely Maneswar Brahma and Maheswar Boro physically assaulted Under Secretary Jyoti Prasad Baruah in a corridor of the secretariat as the officer was standing in the morning which irked the MLAs.
Later a section of the employees came out and gheraoed the two legislators and assaulted both the legislators. Further they the employees gheraoed the Speaker demanding apology by the BPF legislators. Speaker Rai , however, stepped in and assuaged the employees and found out an amicable settlement with negotiation.
