KOLKATA: Three Trinamool Congress members were on Wednesday suspended from the West Bengal Assembly till Friday for engaging in unparliamentary behaviour and heckling Speaker H.A. Halim in July last. Those suspended were Firhad Hakim, Arup Biswas and Dibyendu Adhikari.
The budget session, the last before next month's Assembly election, ends on March 25.
The Trinamool had already announced House boycott for the rest of the session.
On July 29, 2010, the Speaker rejected a privilege notice moved by the three MLAs against Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee. This triggered protests from the Opposition benches leading to commotion in the House and outside Mr. Halim's chamber.
On July 30, Rabindranath Mondal (CPI-M) and some members of the Left Front moved a privilege motion against the three Trinamool MLAs. They were suspended on Wednesday following a discussion on the motion during the day.
