Mumbai: Four MNS MLAs who were involved in creating havoc and assaulting Samanwadi Party (SP) MLA Abus Asim Azmi in the Maharashtra legislative assembly are suspended from the house for four years.


"After what happened in the house today afternoon, four MLAs from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) are suspended for four years", said Chief Minister Ashok Chavan adding, "The decision received support from all the political parties baring MNS."


The resolution for their suspension, moved by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Harshvardhan Patil, was adopted by a voice vote with Shiv Sena-BJP alliance members abstaining.

The four MNS MLAs who are suspended from the house include Ramesh Wanzale from Kahadakwasla, Ram Kadam from Ghatkopar (west), Shishir Shinde from Bhandup and Vasant Gite from Nasik.


MNS MLAs Monday afternoon had created a ruckus in the Maharashtra Assembly after SP MLA Abu Asim Azmi took oath in Hindi. As Azmi started to take his oath in Hindi, several MNS members swooped on him and pushed him aside. Legislator Ramesh Banjle uprooted the microphone from the podium.


As Azmi attempted to save himself, Ram Kadam - MNS MLA from Ghatkopar (west) in Mumbai slapped him and hit him on the face and chest, shocking the 288-member house that had converged for the oath-taking ceremony.


MNS members shouted slogans, demanding that Azmi should take oath in Marathi.


MNS Chief Raj Thackeray had last month announced that his party legislators would ensure that all MLAs took oath in Marathi else his party would teach them a lesson in 'its own style'.


"If any MLA does not take oath in Marathi, the House will see what happens," Raj had threatened.


Leaders condemn the incident

The incident - first of its kind in sixty years history of Maharashtra assembly has shocked the nation and the MNS leaders and MLAs are receiving flak from all political parties.


"It is nothing but shocking. Hindi is the National language of the country and forcing an MLA from taking the oath in that language is nothing but shameless", said Congress leader Digivjay Singh.


The incident also received condemnation from Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Ramvilas Paswan and Shahnawaz Hussain of BJP.


"The way MNS leaders behaved today afternoon is no less than an act of treason. They should be booked without wasting any time", said RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav.


MNS unashamed

Even as the incident is receiving condemnation from all around the corner, MNS leaders are not at all ashamed of what they did in the Maharashtra assembly today afternoon.


"We had already advised the MLAs to take the oath in Marathi. If there are people who don't understand simple language then there is every chance that such thing can happen", Ram Kadam, the MNS MLA who was allegedly involved in the incident said while speaking to the media.


Protests in Maharashtra

Meanwhile, as soon as the news of the incident spread through the media people took to the street and protested in favour of their leaders.


While reports of protest and burning of MNS president's effigy are reported from Bhiwandi and Nagpur by SP workers, people in Pune demonstrated against SP leader Abu Asim Azmi.
