Six Opposition MPs suspended from Lok Sabha for unruly behaviour

Six Opposition MPs suspended from Lok Sabha for unruly behaviour

Six Congress members from the Lok Sabha for five days by Speaker Sumitra Mahajan today on the ground of "highly unbecoming" conduct during their protests ove the lynching issue that "undermined the Chair's dignity".

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.

Gaurav Gogoi, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary, Ranjit Ranjan, Sushmita Dev, M.K. Raghavan, and K. Suresh - were suspended for five sittings of the house after they tore and threw papers in the house as well as at the chair.

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

Congress member and one of the suspended MPs, Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary, said, "Backward class and minorities are now scared of lynching".

Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder?
But an Anthony move to the Thunder , his relationship with Weaver apart, appears to have much less of a foundation. Isola described the report of Thunder interest in Anthony as "legitimate" but was lukewarm on it leading anywhere.

The Congress president Sonia Gandhi later held a meeting with other opposition leaders, in which they have made a decision to hold a sit-in in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament House on Tuesday morning. The Speaker's repeated appeals for calm went unheeded and she adjourned the House for lunch. Congress' Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mallikarjun Kharge, JDU's Sharad Yadav, CPI's D Raja, NCP's Supriya Sule and TMC leaders, including Kalyan Banerjee, were among those who led the protests.

The members from the Congress party trooped into the well of the House shouting and agitating and flinging pieces of paper toward the treasury benches and also the House chair.

The Admiralty (Jurisdiction and Settlement of Maritime Claims) Bill, 2017, introduced during the Winter Session of Parliament came up for discussion in the Rajya Sabha on Monday and was passed unanimously by the house.

The Opposition on Tuesday created ruckus in the Lok Sabha over cow vigilantes and incidents of lynching in the name of cow protection, prompting the Speaker to adjourn the House.

The Congress leader also alleged that there was corruption in Food Corporation of India (FCI) and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED).
