Three MLA Two from Congress Kamalakhya Dey Purkayastha, Jakir Hussain Sikdar and Rajyor Dol MLA Akhil Gogoi suspended from Assembly on Wednesday.
“We want to send a resolution to the President of India requesting her to uphold the Constitution,” opposition leader Debabrata Saikia informed Media.
Replying to the motion, Assam Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “It’s unprecedented that we’re expressing opinions on a judicial matter here. I know that a decision was taken at Congress Legislature Party last night to create noise here.”
