Chaos prevailed in Gujarat Assembly as Congress and BJP came close to blows on Wednesday. 

The trouble began when Congress lawmakers rushed to the well of the house as their MLA from Jamnagar Vikram Madam was not allowed to raise a ''point of order''. Madam had been trying to raise a point of order since Wednesday morning but was not allowed to do so. Meanwhile, another Congress MLA from Danilimda Shailesh Parmar was asked to raise the point of order. 

Meanwhile, Vikram Madam tried to raise a question but was repeatedly shouted down. When he allegedly tried to pull out a mic, he was forced out by marshals.

A fierce argument broke out between another Congress lawmaker, Pratap Dudhat, and BJP legislator Jagdish Panchal.

Within minutes, Dudat uprooted a mic and hurled it at Panchal.

A large number of lawmakers gathered at the well of the house as rivals jostled each other before the Speaker adjourned the proceedings.

The Congress legislator Vikram Madam has been suspended for the entire session.

Earlier this week, two Congress members were expelled from the Telangana Assembly for disrupting the Governor's speech. One of them, Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, flung a pair of headphones and hit an official in the eye.
