Rahul Gandhi had pointed towards the ruling party and said that they are ‘not Hindus’. Apart from this, he had also said that those who call themselves Hindus commit violence. There was a sharp reaction from Danve on Lad’s demand for a solution.

The upper house of the Maharashtra Legislature on Tuesday suspended Leader of Opposition Ambadas Danve for five days for using unparliamentary language in the House. Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Danve was accused of abusing BJP MLC Prasad Lad during a discussion in the council on Monday evening. During the council proceedings, Lad had demanded a censure motion against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s remarks in the Lok Sabha. Rahul Gandhi, pointing to the ruling party, had said that they are ‘not Hindus’. Apart from this, he had also said that those who call themselves Hindus commit violence. Lad’s demand for a solution drew a sharp reaction from Danve.

Following the heated situation, BJP MLAs strongly demanded action against Danve, due to which the House had to be adjourned thrice. On Tuesday, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Chandrakant Patil moved a resolution to suspend the Leader of Opposition, which was passed by a majority. Deputy Speaker of the House Neelam Gorhe read out the suspension order which said “Leader of Opposition Ambadas Danve displayed indiscipline and used indecent and abusive language towards MLA Prasad Lad. His behaviour tarnished the image and insulted the Council. If his misbehaviour is ignored, it may set a new precedent. His misbehaviour has been taken seriously, the House proposes to suspend him for five days and ban his entry into the Vidhan Bhavan.”

Senior Shiv Sena (UBT) MLAs came in for damage control after the incident and MLA Anil Parab demanded that Danve be given a chance to present his side, but the demand was not accepted. Later, the opposition staged a walkout in protest against the decision and raised slogans against Deputy Speaker Gore. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi’s remarks have been sharply criticized across the country. His comments made during the motion of thanks were opposed by the ruling BJP and especially Prime Minister Modi.
