State Assembly sessions often involve elected leaders shouting and trading charges against each other. But one MLA from Tripura got so frustrated with proceedings that he went up to the Speaker's table and ran away with the ceremonial mace on the table.

The incident took place on Monday in the Tripura Assembly over allegations of womanising against Forest Minister Naresh Jamatiya.

During Zero Hour, TMC MLA Sudip Roy Burman, former leader of the opposition, raised the issue published in a local Bengali daily.

Here is the video of him grabbing the Speaker's mace:

Jamatiya then stood up and said that the charges published in the newspaper were baseless and it was a conspiracy to malign his image.The minister also said that he has filed a defamation suit in a court against the newspaper.

But the opposition, comprising of leaders from both TMC and Congress, weren't  convinced. They trooped to the well and raised slogans demanding that Speaker Ramendra Debnath allow a discussion on the matter and a statement from the Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.

However, at one point of time, Roy Burman picked up the mace lying on the Speaker's table and fled from the House. He later handed it over to the assembly staff in the lobby.

The Speaker adjourned the house till 2 PM. When the House reassembled, the Speaker condemned the taking away of the mace. Afterwards, the House functioned normally.

Here is the video of him running away:
