Patna: RJD chief Lalu Yadav on Wednesday justified the unruly behaviour of Bihar MLAs and said that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is to be blamed for this.
Lashing out at Nitish Kumar for being involved in multi-crore fraud, Lalu said that, “The orders to probe the 11,000crore scam in which Nitish is involved has come from the High Court and not the opposition parties.”
Demanding Nitish Kumar’s resignation Lalu said that, “After this incident Nitish should give his resignation. He is involved in fraud and more such cases are to surface up. Even if Nitish does not quit there are just 90 days left for his government,” he said.
“Nitish, Kushwaha and Sushil Modi must get a taste of the CBI. The violent behaviour of the MLAs is understandable. What could they do under such circumstances?” said Lalu.
Earlier in the day, Bihar Assembly Speaker UN Choudhry suspended a total of 67 Opposition MLAs for the rest of the Monsoon session for unruly behaviour in the House.
The ruckus inside the State Assembly broke out the second day as Opposition MLAs and MLCs vowed to continue their dharna in both the Houses till their demand is met.
Amid chaotic scenes in the House, a slipper was also thrown at the podium of the Speaker.
In a bid to restore order inside the House, marshalls were called in to flush out the agitating MLAs.
State RJD President Abdul Bari Siddiqui and RJD deputy leader in the Assembly Shakee Ahmed Khan were among those suspended.
