PATNA: Five protesting RJD legislators were marshaled out of the House as the weeklong monsoon session of the Bihar state legislature ended on a bitter note on Friday.
As per media reports, the RJD members were protesting in the Legislative council over Rs 1,000 crore Srijan scam when the chief minister Nitish Kumar came in.
Seeing the chief minister, the RJD members went on angrily protesting in the well of the House displaying posters which Kumar objected.
Subsequently, deputy chairman Haroon Rashid asked the protesting members to go back to their seats but they refused.
Eventually, they were marshaled out of the House.
“Today is a black day in the history of Bihar legislative council as the RJD members were marshaled out. This was done at the instance of the chief minister,” alleged RJD’s chief spokesperson Shakti Singh Yadav told the media today.
He said the people would not tolerate such “despotic” action by the government.
