Bihar assembly adjourned following death of RLSP MLA
Patna: The Bihar State Assembly was adjourned on Monday following the sudden demise of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) MLA Basant Kushwaha.
Kushwaha died this morning of a heart attack. He was 54. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar paid tributes to the leader whose body was brought to Patna and kept at the party office for people to offer their last respects.
"This is very unfortunate. I pay my condolences and I pray that he rests in peace. This is the first incident of a leader that has died just before the session and the taking of oath. There has been tradition that when a leader passes away, then the Vidhan Sabha proceedings are suspended," said Kumar while paying tribute to Kushwaha.
