Patna: Bihar Assembly Speaker Udai Narayan Chaudhary termed the ruckus in the state Assembly on Tuesday as unfortunate but ruled out any action against the guilty MLAs.
"Whatever happened in the Bihar Assembly was really unfortunate. There is a way to put across your point in parliamentary democracy. I would just sit and request them to solve their problems through discussions," Chaudhary told CNN-IBN.
When asked what action will he take against the MLAs, the Speaker replied, "The question is not about action. We need to see how we can solve problems through talks and I will talk to them about this."
The Assembly was thrown into turmoil when Opposition RJD, LJP and Congress MLAs came to blows with ruling MLAs demanding Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's resignation. The proceedings got off to a noisy start with the Opposition demanding the resignation of the Nitish Kumar government in view of an adverse order by the Patna High Court.
Last week, the High Court ordered a CBI inquiry into alleged irregularities of over Rs 11,000 crore in the execution of development and welfare schemes between 2002 and 2008. While RJD was in power between 2002-05, Nitish Kumar replaced the Rabri Devi as Chief Minister in 2005.
