Congress legislator Baldev Thakor was suspended for a year for allegedly disrupting the proceedings in the House.

At this point, seemingly agitated by something said to him by BJP MLA Jagdish Panchal, Congress legislator Pratap Dudhat rushed from his place and grabbed a microphone from one of the desks and threw it towards Panchal, missing him by inches.

This made the Congress MLAs furious and they started shouting slogans inside the Vidhan Sabha. "I wanted to suspend the errant legislators for five years but the ruling party appears to be soft and has sought only three years' suspension", Trivedi said.

Speaker Rajendra Trivedi strongly reprimanded the legislators, calling their act hooliganism, and said the stiff punishment was aimed at setting a deterrent to such behaviour. Deputy chief minister Nitin Patel later told reporters, "This is a shameful incident which has never happened in the history of Gujarat Assembly". Earlier this week, two Congress members were expelled from the Telangana Assembly for disrupting the Governor's speech. Der and BJP member from Nikol Jagdish Panchal indulged in a heated exchange.

Meanwhile, the Congress MLA from Jam Khambhaliya Vikram Madam raised an objection and said the speaker that he was not allowed to ask the question, although he raised his hand.

Madam, however, insisted that he would speak.

At that time, Der asked the speaker to allow Madam to speak. The Speaker complained about Der's tone, after which the two Congress leaders rushed to the Well of the House. Trivedi then suspended both the Congress MLAs for the day and they were taken out of the Assembly by the marshals.

Later, speaking to media persons, Dudhat alleged that he was being targetted by the treasury benches and abuses were being hurled at him for over a week.

Dudhat was angry with Panchal for asking Congress MLAs to remain silent when the speaker was making his point. Lawmakers Ambrish Der and Pratap Dudhat have been suspended for three years while another MLA has been suspended for one year. This forced the Speaker to adjourn the House for 10 minutes, which was later extended till 2.30 pm.
