Guwahati: The three-day non-cooperation of the Opposition parties with the Speaker over his “crowing about” comment finished after a post-session concise meeting of the opponent parties with the guardian of the House at the latter’s office chamber. The meeting was held in presence of Parliamentary Affairs Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka and Forest Minister Rockybul Hussain.
The Opposition parties determined to non-cooperate with the Speaker at a joint meeting on the evening of March 27, subsequent the Speaker’s directive to the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) legislators not to crow about and after that forced out them from the House for a day in the forenoon hours that day.
Prior, expressing unity with the AIDF legislators, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislators also trooped out of the House and determined to lay off from the actions of the House for the rest of that day.
The March 27 joint meeting of the Opposition legislature parties explained the words of the Speaker that evaluates the AIUDF members with crows as un-parliamentary and claimed that those words be withdrawn. Until the words are withdrawn, they determined to ‘non-cooperate’ with the Speaker, leading to a stalemate.
AIUDF Legislative Party leader Sirajuddin Ajmal said that the Speaker told them that he had used an Assamese proverb merely and there was nothing malafide in it. “The misunderstanding is over,” he said.
