Guwahati: Raijor Dal chief Akhil Gogoi was on Monday suspended from the budget session of the Assam Legislative Assembly for disrupting House proceedings.
Speaker Biswajit Daimary suspended Gogoi for trying to disrupt Governor jagdish Mukhi’s address on the first day of the Budget Session. As the Governor was delivering his address, Gogoi asked when one lakh jobs would be created.
The Sivasagar legislator was even seen protesting with a placard in his hand. Daimary had requested Gogoi to raise the matter after the Governor’s speech, but the legislature did not listen. The Speaker immediately suspended Gogoi from the House.
“The Governor’s address in the Assembly was very disappointing with no clear policies and programmes. There is no declaration on issues related to the people of Assam,” Gogoi told reporters outside the Assembly.
