The Congress and Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLAs had approached the Speaker and started sloganeering against Tripura forest minister Naresh Jamatia. Suddenly, TMC MLA Sudip Roy Barman seized the Speaker’s mace and ran away with it.
The marshals followed Barman and after half-a-minute brought the mace back, before Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath went to his chamber.
