Bhubenswar: Two BJP MLAs have been suspended from the Odisha Assembly for the remaining days of the Monsoon Session.
BJP MLAs Mohan Majhi and Mukesh Mahaling have been suspended from the Assembly after they reportedly threw dal (pulses) to the Speaker’s podium today. Both were suspended by Speaker Pramila Mallik, sources said.
The two MLAs threw dal at the Speaker’s podium after they were allegedly denied to speak in the House, sources added.
Notably, Mallik had resigned as Women and Child Development Minister in the wake of allegations of a Rs 700 crore scam in purchase of dal for midday meal scheme in Odisha in 2011.
