Opposition protests against suspension of 6 Congress MPs

This is not the first time Ms. Mahajan is suspending Opposition members.

Earlier in the day, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi along and the rest of the Opposition, protested outside the Parliament at the Gandhi statue against the suspension of six Congress MPs by Lok Sabha Speaker yesterday.

Six Congress MPs were on Monday suspended from the Lok Sabha for five days for their "highly unbecoming conduct", reports said. "We are fighting for the people even Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said that the government is not with the fake Gaurakshak (cow protector)".

"Anurag Thakur is excused after a warning".

The Congress leader said the party members wanted to raise the issue of "injustice" to Dalits, minorities, weaker sections, "mob frenzy" and issues concerning farmers but the party's adjournment motion notices were not accepted. We see another case of injustice.

"Mobile se agar kisiko aapattee hai to. mein khed vyakt karta hoon (If someone has objections to (my) mobile, then I express my regret)", Thakur said amid noisy protests by Opposition members.

Soon, Congress members trooped into the Well and raised slogans such as "Pradhan Mantri jawab do (PM should reply)", "tanashahi nahin chalegi (end dictatorship)", "jaat ke nam par rajniti band karo (End politics in the name of caste)". Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar had also agreed to a discussion on the issue, but despite that many members disrupted the proceedings, she said while pronouncing the order. "It was a black day in the history of Indian democracy", he said outside Parliament.

As Congress members, including Scindia, Kantilal Bhuria, K C Venugopal and Ravneet Singh Bittu, rushed to the Well, the Speaker said she was trying to accomodate everyone by allowing them to ventilate their concerns.

"He chooses to speak to captive audiences in BJP rallies but misses every opportunity (in the House) for a meaningful debate to answer questions", Kharge said.
