Six Congress MPs Suspended by Lok Sabha Speaker for 'Creating Ruckus'

Posted July 26, 2017

Some of these members had picked up papers from the Lok Sabha secretariat staffers' table and had torn and thrown them, Mahajan said.

Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, Kharge claimed that such an incident never took place under former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, who, he said, never lost her cool amid the "usual" turbulence which the Lower House often faced.

The suspended MPs are Gaurav Gogoi, K. Suresh, Adhiranjan Chowdhary, Ranjeet Ranjan, Sushmita Dev and MK Raghwan.

As Opposition members protested loudly, Ms. Mahajan said she would like too see "how much indiscipline was possible".

Mahajan said Mukherjee's life's journey from an humble village in West Bengal to Rashtrapati Bhavan is "entwined with contemporary history of our nation and inspiring for all".

It was another awful year for the Knicks as the team finished 31-51, good enough for a 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Rose , who played collegiately at Memphis, has averaged 19.5 points and 6.0 assists in his eight-year career.

An indicator on the day's proceedings in the LS was available in the morning when MPs belonging to Congress, Trinamool Congress, RJD, NCP, CPM, CPI SP, etc staged a united dharna in front of the Gandhi statue in Parliament House by raising slogans against the suspension of six fellow MPs.

The Congress on Monday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the issue of suspension of its party leaders in the Parliament and said that the Centre has been trying to restrict freedom of speech of the opposition.

The Congress has said its MPs were only attempting to raise the issue of rising mob lynchings and that the opposition is being stifled by not being allowed to speak.

An upset Mahajan said she was "hurt" by the "unruly behaviour" and disruption of proceedings when she had agreed to allot time for a discussion on the issues. The Oppositions act of pointing out the mistakes committed by the government is part of the democratic tradition of the country.

The Lok Sabha witnessed uproar during the zero hour today when the Opposition members surged into the well and demanded the Prime Minister's presence to discuss the incidents of lynching in the name of cow protection. "We request you to reconsider and lift the suspension of the MPs".
