The West Bengal assembly Tuesday witnessed unruly scenes as the Left Front and the ruling Trinamool Congress members indulged in fist fighting, resulting in three legislators being injured and hospitalised and three others suspended. The fracas broke out when the Left Front   

Kolkata: Congress legislators wore helmets to the West Bengal assembly Wednesday, after a scuffle in the house a day earlier between ruling Trinamool Congress and opposition Left Front members left three legislators hospitalised.

Three legislators were also suspended after the scuffle, which occurred on the issue of the operation of chit funds in the state.

Over 20-odd Congress lawmakers wore helmets as they entered the house, but later removed these as Speaker Biman Banerjee asked them to take off their protective headgear.

"This was only a symbolic way to protest the 'black incident' that happened yesterday (Tuesday). This (wearing the helmets) was not done to lower the esteem of the house," Congress leader Manas Bhunia said.

"Prothome maatha tarpore kotha (head first, talks later)," the leader of the Congress legislative party Mohammad Sohrab said.

Following Tuesday's brawl, three Left legislators -- Amjad Hussain, Nazimul Haq and Sushanta Besra -- were suspended by the Speaker for the rest of the winter session.

The Congress and Left Front members Tuesday evening met Governor M.K. Narayanan, seeking his intervention in the matter.
