Patna: Opposition Congress member
Jyoti today created a ruckus in the state legislative council
to protest against Chief Minister Nitish Kumar`s alleged
remarks against her party member over naming of a road in the
state capital.

Jyoti raised the issue in the House during the
pre-lunch session and alleged that she was insulted by chief
minister on the issue.

She later stood on her seat. Jyoti was soon
joined by her party MLC Chandan Bagchi which led to ruling
JD(U) members Mahachandra Singh and Satish Kumar asking the
chairman of the council to bring the House in order.

Leader of opposition in the House Ghulam Ghaus also
started speaking something which was inaudible and heated
exchanges between the Congress and treasury bench members led
to obstruction in the proceedings of the House for sometime.

The council chairman later pacified the agitated
members and Jyoti once again raised the issue of anti-social
elements constructing their houses on the Tailor Road close
to her residence.

Chief Minister had yesterday said that the Congress
members should know that the said road has been named after
the first Chief Minister of Bihar Shri Krishna Singh.

Council Chairman Tarakant Jha assured the agitated
Congress members of taking up the issue raised by Jyoti with
the state government. Bagchi also demanded that chief minister
should apologise for his uncharitable remarks.
