Goa legislative assembly Speaker Pratapsingh Rane on Saturday warned the minister to throw him out of the house after he consistently ignored the warnings to keep quite during the question hour.

"I will ask the Marshall to throw you out of the house, if you don’t sit down now. There is no freedom to talk anything and use whatever words (unparliamentary) you want to use," Rane told state sports minister Manohar Asgaonkar during the assembly session today.

Asgaonkar was reprimanded after he used certain unparliamentary words responding to the question raised by BJP legislator Laxmikant Parsekar over proposed sports city in Pernem taluka.

The minister, was initially asked not to use unparliamentary words by the Speaker, went on with his reply despite Speaker taking next question.

Annoyed over the minister’s conduct, the Speaker said that the words used by the minister was 'street-words'. "You are being watched by lakhs of people through live telecast. You should be responsible while making any statements," he said.
