Gandhinagar, Feb 20 (ANI): Gujarat Assembly Speaker Ashok Bhatt on Friday revoked the suspension of 16 Congress MLAs, three days after they had created disturbance during the budget session.
The MLAs had shouted slogans and displayed placards in the House on February 17 when the Governor began his speech.
Following that, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, Amit Shah, moved a motion to suspend the 16 MLAs.
After the MLAs suspension, the Congress boycotted Assembly proceedings and held a sit-in demonstration outside the Speakers office.
The speaker called for a meeting of representatives of both parties and the issue was sorted out amicably. (ANI)
