Sena MLAs walk out of Maha Assembly demanding BJP MLC's termination

Shiv Sena Member Legislative Assembly (MLA) on Tuesday walked out from the Lower House of the Maharashtra Assembly after they demanded the termination of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Maharashtra Legislative Council (MLC), Prashant Paricharak.

In May last year, Prashant Paricharak, a BJP MLC and a legislator from Solapur was suspended for one-and-a-half year for allegedly making objectionable remarks on wives of army soldiers during campaigning for the local polls.

Last week, the Maharashtra Government had withdrawn the suspension of Paricharak, who had made objectionable comments about the wives of soldiers.

Paricharak had joked about soldiers stationed at the border that they distribute sweets when their babies are born although they haven't been to their home in a year, indirectly alleging their wives as unfaithful. However, he later apologised for his remarks.
