MUMBAI: Congress MLA Aslam Shaikh was today suspended from Maharashtra Assembly for a day after he spurned the Chair's directions not to throw paper waste in the House.

Shaikh, who represents Malad West Assembly constituency, was protesting against the alleged 'purification' of a lake in Mahad by a Shiv Sena MLA.

He was tearing bits of paper and throwing them in the House.

Yogesh Sagar, who was in the Chair, objected to this and asked Shaikh to desist from throwing 'kachra' (trash) in the House.

When Shaikh did not budge, Sagar announced that the Congress MLA was suspended for a day.
