Feel bad for Gaurav Gogoi: Piyush Hazarika

New Delhi: Assam Minister Piyush Hazarika took a dig at Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, expressing his disappointment and accusing him of resorting to inappropriate behaviour to secure a ticket from Assam's Nagaon constituency for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Hazarika's Critique

"I feel really bad for @GauravGogoiAsm dangoriya. To make one family happy - so they give him a ticket from Nagaon by removing a sitting MP - what all he needs to do! The way he misbehaved today in Parliament, he has insulted Assam," Hazarika said in a post on 'X'.

Gogoi's Ambition for Nagaon

Gogoi has reportedly shown interest in contesting from Nagaon parliamentary constituency, where other Congress strongmen like sitting MP Pradyut Bordoloi and former Assam Minister Rakibul Hussain have also submitted their applications for candidature.

Parliamentary Altercation

Gogoi had a verbal spat with Speaker Om Birla on Friday, while the former was interrupted several times during his Motion of Thanks on the President's address.

While Gogoi went on to speak about Union Home Minister Amit Shah not giving a statement on the Parliament security breach, Birla asked him to limit his speech to the President's address.

Speaker's Intervention

Next, while Gogoi was speaking on the suspension of as many as 146 MPs from the House, the Speaker asked him not to question the decision of the House.

While Gogoi said that the Narendra Modi government has transformed the Parliament from a "temple of democracy" to a "king's court," Birla interrupted him again, asking him not to critique the House in which he was speaking.
