In recent news, Chairman Venkaiah Naidu has suspended eight opposition MPs including Derek O Brien, Sanjay Singh, Raju Satav, KK Ragesh, Ripun Bora, Dola Sen, Syed Nazir Hussain, and Elamaran Karim for their alleged “misbehavior” with the Chair on Sunday regarding the new farm bills.
Additionally, the monsoon session of the parliament has been adjourned once again after a new round of protests erupted in Rajya Sabha on Monday. The uproar was triggered after Naidu expressed his remarks on the previous day’s ruckus that was caused in the parliament. He informed he was “deeply pained” by the incident.
“I was deeply pained by what happened yesterday. All social distancing and COVID protocols were violated. Whatever happened, defied logic. It was a bad day for the Rajya Sabha. The deputy chairman was physically threatened. I was worried about his physical being,” Naidu said.
Naidu has also rejected the opposition’s no-confidence motion against Deputy Chairman Harivansh following yesterday’s uproar. The house has been adjourned till 10:40 am.
