Patna: Two JD(U) MLAs were allegedly barred from entering the Bihar Legislative Assembly as they went with the petition to have Bihar Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary impeached.
According to MLA Pawan Jaiswal and Ravinder Rai, when they tried to visit the Assembly Secretary they were roughly pushed out by the marshal.
They claim that the marshal told them that they were not permitted to give them entry.
“The marshal pushed us and said that our membership in the Vidhan Sabha had ended and we no longer belong here”, they claim.
The marshal told me that the High Court has cancelled our membership, said Pawan Jaiswal, a Jitan Manjhi supporter.
Ravinder Rai who is also Manjhi's supporter said, “I am still a member of the Legislative Assembly. The High Court does not intervene in removing MLAs, it's the Chairman's decision”.
In fast paced development, Bihar Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary on Sunday recognised Nitish Kumar as the new leader of JD (U) Legislature Party and Jitan Ram Manjhi as a former head.
