Mickky refuses to respect Guv, walks out during her speech

His anger against the lady Governor goes back to the mercy petition he had made to her while he was imprisoned for six months for slapping a government officer on duty in 2006.

“I did not mind rejecting my mercy petition, but she did not even bother to answer my petition”, he recalled.

According to him, the question of respecting such a governor does arise who does not respect the MLA.

The BJP government, which he supported right from its formation in 2012, had sought his pardon but Governor Sinha had declined the plea.

While protesting against Governor Sinha’s action, Mickky however was not committal on also opposing the BJP-led coalition government.

“My support would be issue-based, I am not at anybody’s mercy”, he told

Good for you Mickky Give respect earn respect protocol be damned


Clearly he is an airhead. It is the protocol that needs to be followed. You may have a grievance against the individual but whatever the rules are of the house must be observed. Clearly this guy is a jerk and not learning from his mistakes.
