New Delhi: Tensions soared in Parliament on Thursday as Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla suspended three more Opposition MPs, taking the total to 146 this session. This action came hours after the INDIA bloc marched in protest against the government from Parliament to Vijay Chowk.
- Suspended MPs: D.K Suresh, Nakul Nath, and Deepak Baij (Congress) were suspended from Lok Sabha on Thursday, taking the total number of suspended Opposition MPs from Parliament to 146.
- Reason: “Unruly behaviour” (details not provided)
- Opposition Accusations:
- PM Modi violating privilege by not speaking on Parliament security breach inside the House
- Government trying to pass bills without Opposition’s scrutiny
- Disrespecting Parliament by speaking outside instead of addressing concerns
- Opposition Protest: Marched with banners like “Save Democracy” and “Parliament Caged”
Over 140 Opposition MPs have been suspended since December 14 for causing disruptions to the functioning of both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and raising slogans while demanding a statement from Union Home Minister Amit Shah on the December 13 Parliament Security Breach.
Congress MP Karti Chidambaram compared the situation to playing cricket without fielders, implying easy passage of bills without opposition. Opposition’s boycott led to the smooth passage of several important bills.
A tumultuous day in Parliament saw heightened tensions between the government and the Opposition, marking a continuation of the ongoing clash over various issues.
