Chit Fund Scheme: Left, TMC MLAs clash in WB Assembly


The ruling Trinamool Congress Leaders and key opposition the Left got into a scuffle on the floor of the West Bengal Assembly today, following uproar over a chit fund scheme. The incident took place when the Left Front moved an adjournment motion over the state government's alleged failure to curb chit funds in the state. After West Bengal Assembly Speaker Biman Banerjee rejected the Left Front's plea, MLAs from the two sides came to blows with each other. CPM MLA Gaurango Chattopadhyay was hurt, and rushed to the hospital, following the scuffle.
