Parliamentary Affairs Minister Chandrakant Patil moved a resolution to suspend Patil, which was accepted
The state President of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Jayant Patil was suspended for the remainder of the winter session of the Maharashtra Assembly for derogatory remarks against the speaker.
The decision was taken by Speaker Rahul Narwekar after Patil made an ‘unparliamentary’ remark against Narwekar.
BJP’s Parliamentary Affairs Minister Chandrakant Patil moved a resolution to suspend Patil, which was accepted.
Patil’s utterance led to a huge ruckus in the Assembly with the ruling Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena (BSS) – the Eknath Shinde faction and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members demanding suspension of Patil for one year for the alleged slur aimed at the Speaker’s chair.
Thereafter, at least three meetings were held with the Speaker, in the presence of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis, and Opposition members, followed by the decision to suspend Patil for the remaining duration of the Assembly session.
Soon after this, NCP, Congress, and Shiv Sena (UBT) walked out of the House and staged a protest outside the legislature.
