Speaker of the J&K Assembly Mohammad Akbar Lone on Monday ruled out any action against opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehooba Mufti for attacking him with a mike.

“It was childish on part of Mehbooba Mufti to intentionally attack me with a mike,” Lone told The Indian Express. “Such an incident has never happened in the Parliamentary history of J&K and the country. But,to be honest,I do not plan any disciplinary action against her. I won’t even suspend her.”

Lone Refuted PDP’s allegation that he was “biased,undemocratic and partisan” and said he would ensure the House functions smoothly.

“Every MLA will be allowed to seek replies from the government in proper way but the MLAs should not disrupt the proceedings of the House. They must maintain the decorum of the House and behave decently while participating in Legislative business,” the speaker said. “Nobody will be allowed to dishonour the House through indecent behaviour,” Lone warned.
