Now a days, politicians are turning into comedians. They make us laugh more than actual comedians. All you have to do is to turn on some news channel. They do all sorts of crazy things. We recently witnessed some dramas at our legislative assembly during the solar issue. But that’s nothing compared to what happened in Tripura.
During the house proceedings in Tripura, a TMC legislator ran away with the Speaker’s mace, stalling legislative business. The incident occurred while the members were debating heatedly about the alleged “womanising” issue involving ruling CPI-M leaders. The Congress and Trinamool Congress (TMC) legislators had approached the Speaker’s podium and started sloganeering against Forests Minister Naresh Jamatia. All of a sudden, TMC MLA Sudip Roy Barman seized the Speaker’s mace and ran away with it outside the house abruptly putting a halt to the proceedings.
The Watch-and-Ward staff, led by the Marshal, followed Barman and after half-a-minute brought the mace back, before Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath went to his chamber.
