Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party MLC Ram Pandagale, suspended for the entire Budget session of Maharashtra legislature for his conduct in the Upper House, has been issued show-cause notice by the party on the issue.

On March 20, while debating the issues related to workers of the defunct textile mills in the metropolis, Pandagale had shared an anecdote about former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi using unparliamentary language, leading to an uproar in the House.

Congress legislator Zainuddin Zaveri strongly objected to it and used abusive language against Pandagale. Zaveri was suspended for three days.

"Pandagale has been issued show-cause notice, asking him to desist from maligning the image of the party," NCP sources said.
