Patil said the members had breached the privilege of the House by their action of disregarding the Chair and bringing idol of a deity on the floor of the House.
The House was later adjourned for the day. Earlier, at
the fag end of the Question Hour, Sena members came into the
house carrying a silver plated idol of the elephant headed
god shouting "Ganpati Bappa Morya?Ganpati gele chori la...laaj
nahi sarkarla"(Ganpati has been stolen and the government is
not ashamed). They also played the cymbals.

up, Speaker Dilip Walse Patil asked him to remove the topi and
saffron robes worn by him before speaking in the House.

joined by rest of the Sena legislators following which Patil
adjourned the House for 30 minutes.

House and asked the legislators who had gathered into the Well
