Amid the ongoing winter session of Parliament, the members of the ruling BJP party and the opposition took their fight outside the house.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs staged a protest in Parliament on Friday against the ‘unruly’ behaviour of the Opposition parties. On the other hand, Opposition MPs protested against the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs.
Both the houses of Parliament have been continuously witnessing disruptions since the winter session began on Monday.
The suspension of a dozen members of Opposition parties in Rajya Sabha on the very first day on Monday following a motion brought in by the government angered the Opposition. The decision was taken for alleged unruly conduct towards the end of the monsoon session in August when marshals were called after Opposition members stormed the Well of the House during the passage of the General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Bill, 2021.
Here’s a complete list of the suspended members
- Phulo Devi Netam – Congress
- Chhaya Verma – Congress
- Ripun Bora – Congress
- Rajamani Patel – Congress
- Syed Nasir Hussain – Congress
- Akhilesh Prasad Singh – Congress
- Dola Sen – Trinamool Congress
- Shanta Chhetri – Trinamool Congress
- Priyanka Chaturvedi – Shiv Sena
- Anil Desai – Shiv Sena
- Elamaram Kareem – CPM
- Binoy Viswam – CPI
The suspension set the stage for acrimonious exchanges between the government and the opposition.
The winter session is likely to conclude on December 23.
