Sharing the visuals of the fist fight that took place, Amit Malviya questioned the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government of trying to hide something.

“Absolute pandemonium in the West Bengal Assembly. After Bengal Governor, TMC MLAs now assault BJP MLAs, including Chief Whip Manoj Tigga, as they were demanding a discussion on the Rampurhat massacre on the floor of the house. What is Mamata Banerjee trying to hide?” Malviya tweeted following the chaotic incident.

Around 25 BJP MLAs led by Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari then walked out of the Assembly, claiming that several party legislators were roughed up by TMC MLAs inside the House.
