Highlights:

  • All party leaders will meet tomorrow to discuss the future course of action to resist the government’s authoritarian decision
  • The Opposition claimed that the motion moved by the House was ‘unprecedented and violated the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business of the Council of States’
  • The statement has not been signed by the Trinamool Congress

Amid the decision to suspend the 12 Rajya Sabha MPs, the Opposition parties informed that their party leaders will meet tomorrow to discuss the future course of action to resist the government’s authoritarian decision. Calling the decision ‘unwarranted and undemocratic,’ the Opposition highly criticized it.

Releasing a statement, the Opposition claimed that the motion moved by the House was ‘unprecedented and violated the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business of the Council of States’. Nearly 12 MPs have been suspended for the entire Winter Session of the Parliament.

The statement released has been signed by nearly, 14 Opposition parties including Congress, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Shiv Sena, Samajwadi Party, and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). However, in a shocking move, the Trinamool Congress has not associated itself with the joint statement.

Earlier, the House moved a motion to suspend 12 members of the Rajya Sabha and has banned them for the entire Winter Session due to the previous ruckus created on Monsoon Session. Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that the autocratic government has taken this step to create fear among the lawmakers.

The list included the name of, Elamaram Kareem of CPM, Congress’s Akhilesh Prasad Singh, Phulo Devi Netam, Chhaya Verma, R Bora, Rajamani Patel, Syed Nasir Hussain, CPI’s Binoy Viswam, TMC’s Dola Sen, Shanta Chhetri, and Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi and Anil Desai.
