New Delhi: Four Maharashtra Navnirman Sena MLAs have been suspended after they attacked Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi on Monday, insisting he take his oath in Marathi instead of Hindi.
A privilege motion was passed by Minister Harshvardhan Patil on Monday, asking that the four MLAs be suspended.
The motion was accepted and passed by the Speaker of the House after which the four - Ram Kadam, Vasant Gite, Shishir Shinde and Ramesh Wanjale - were suspended from the House.
All four are first timers and have been suspended for four years. They have also been barred from entering Mumbai and Nagpur whenever the Assembly meets in the two cities.
A ruffled Azmi, earlier the Samajwadi Party MP from Mumbai, demanded the arrest of MNS chief Raj Thackeray.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan defended Abu Azmi saying, "The Constitution allows a member of the Assembly to take oath in any language."
Raj Thackeray's MLAs surrounded Abu Azmi and pushed and slapped him. MNS MLA Ram Kadam hit him on the face and chest shocking the 288-member House.
Raj Thackeray had issued a diktat a few days ago that ALL mlas must take oath in Marathi, but Abu Azmi had insisted that he would take his oath in Hindi and dared the MNS to act against him.
