In the Odisha Legislative Assembly, BJP MLAs targeted the Speaker and hurled slippers and earphones at him. After this, there was an uproar in the house. Seeing the ruckus in the House, the Speaker declared the proceedings of the House as deferred. As soon as the proceedings of the House resumed, BJD MLA Pramila Malik had proposed to suspend the BJP MLAs against this act. Acting on this proposal, the Speaker has suspended the three legislators from the House for this session after watching the video footage.

From the commencement of the proceedings of the House on Saturday, there was a disturbance. The Congress legislators had demanded a discussion on the mining corruption issue by bringing a multi-pronged proposal. However, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly did not allow the Congress MLA for this. After this, the Congress MLAs came in the middle of the House opposing it and started making a ruckus. BJP MLAs supported this incident of the Congress. Seeing the ruckus in the House, at first, the Speaker postponed the proceedings of the House till 11:30 pm.
