Three Trinamool Congress MLAs suspended
Incidentally, no TMC member is attending the last Budget session before the coming Assembly elections.

Kolkata: Three Trinamool Congress MLAs were suspended on Wednesday from the West Bengal Assembly till March 25 for indulging in unparliamentary behaviour and heckling Speaker Hasim Abdul Halim in July 2010.

"Firhad Hakim, Arup Biswas and Dibyendu Adhikari are suspended for three days from Wednesday," Speaker said.

Incidentally, no Trinamool Congress member is attending the last Budget session before the coming Assembly elections.

On July 29, 2010, the three Trinamool Congress members had brought a privilege notice against Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, which was rejected by the Speaker.

The three members then protested the rejection and this led to commotion inside the House and also in front of the Speaker's chamber.

On July 30, CPM MLA Rabindranath Mondal and seven other MLAs of Left Front brought a privilege motion against the three TMC MLAs alleging unparliamentary behaviour and heckling the Speaker.

The motion also alleged that the Speaker had fallen ill and doctors had to be called in.

On Wednesday, following a discussion on the motion, the three were suspended with unanimous support from all present members, who were all ruling Left Front members.
