Mumbai, Aug 2 (IANS) In an unprecedented act, members of Maharashtra’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena coalition staged a walk-out from the Legislative Council on Tuesday, disrupting proceedings.

The development came after a series of three adjournments in the upper house by the belligerent opposition parties – which are in majority in the upper house – on various issues, including a demand for the resignation of Housing Minister Prakash Mehta.

Complaining that the opposition parties were not allowing the ministers and legislators to speak, the ruling BJP-SS members walked out of the house in the afternoon.

Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab accused the opposition Congress-Nationalist Congress Party members of flouting rules, creating ruckus and disrupting the proceedings of the upper house.
