Jallikattu In Tripura


The Tripura Assembly on Monday witnessed a bizarre scene during the house proceedings as a TMC legislator ran away with the Speaker's mace, stalling legislative business.

The incident occurred while the members were debating heatedly about the alleged "womanising" issue involving ruling CPI-M leaders.

The Congress and Trinamool Congress legislators had approached the Speaker's podium and started sloganeering against Forests Minister Naresh Jamatia.

All of a sudden, TMC MLA Sudip Roy Barman seized the Speaker's mace and ran away with it outside the house abruptly putting a halt to the proceedings.
