PATNA: The Bihar Legislative Council witnessed unruly scenes on Thursday, with the BJP and JD(U) MLCs pushing and shoving each other in the presence of their top leaders. 

The quarrel took place during the question hour when JD(U) member Sanjay Singh objected to BJP’s Sushil Kumar Modi, who is Leader of the Opposition in the Council, referring to Water Resources Minister Vijay Chaudhary by name. Singh also commented that the BJP leader seemed to be suffering from some disease due to which he kept blubbering something all the time.

A visibly peeved Sushil rushed into the Well of the House and demanded to expunge the comments from the record and condemn Singh’s behaviour. Other BJP members joined him and shouted slogans against the government and it forced Council Chairman Awdesh Narayan Singh to adjourn the House till 2.30 pm.

As soon as the Chairman left the House, a scuffle broke out between BJP state president Mangal Pandey and Singh. Both exchanged blows and shoving.  Other BJP and JD(U) MLCs soon joined the scuffle.
