Jaipur, Feb 21 (UNI) The Opposition Congress and a CPI(M) member today staged walkout over the issue of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's alleged "misbehaviour" with Leader of the Opposition Hemaram Chaudhary in the Rajasthan Assembly yesterday.

Taking serious exception to Ms Raje's attitude towards Mr Chaudhary CPI(M) legislator Amara Ram said the Chief Minister's behaviour towards the opposition was ''unbearable.'' He said the Chief Minister should tender an apology in the House for her "behaviour" Several Congress members, including Mr CP Joshi, Mr BD Kalla and Mr Zuber Khan and expelled BJP member Prahlad Gunjal also criticised Ms Raje's behaviour.

However, treasury benches including Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore, his ministerial colleagues LN Dave and Sanwar Lal Jat and Government Chief Whip Mahavir Prasad Jain opposed the CPI(M) and Congress members.

Deputy Speaker Ram Narain Vishnoi asked the members to allow normal business in the house. This led to uproarious scenes in the house for about 20 minutes and Mr Gunjal was seen engaged in a verbal duel with Ministers Rajendra Rathore and Sanwar Lal Jat.
