Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar lost his cool in the state Legislative Council on Monday and reprimanded an RJD member, asking him to learn the rules of legislative proceedings.

The incident took place when state Rural Works Minister Jayant Raj was responding to a query. RJD MLC Subodh Rai, apparently not satisfied with the answer, rose to ask a supplementary question, but without permission of Council Chairman Awadhesh Narayan Singh.

According to the rules, a member of a House can ask a supplementary question only after the minister has fully answered the original question.

Perturbed with the frequent interruptions, Nitish rose to intervene and suggested that the RJD MLC “get conversant with rules of legislative proceedings” first. But Rai started arguing with the CM. At this, the CM looked upset and raised his voice, telling the RJD leader, “Pehle niyam jaan lo (first know the rules) and then ask questions. You may take your seat.”

The council chairperson then intervened and brought the Upper House in order.

Later, RJD spokesperson Mritunjay Tewari said: “Though there is nothing wrong in the CM giving a piece of advice to a RJD legislator, the CM has been getting upset at little things these days.”

In the last Assembly session, Nitish had lost his temper over an attack by Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Prasad Yadav.
