Congress President Sonia Gandhi today dubbed as ‘Black Day’ for democracy the suspension of 25 party MPs from Lok Sabha as her party said the Narendra Modi government is implementing “Gujarat model” of democracy here.

Sonia Gandhi, who appeared agitated soon after Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s decision to suspend 25 Congress MPs, said, “It is a Black Day for democracy.”

“Like in Gujarat the opposition members used to get suspended, similar thing is happening here. It is the Gujarat model which is being implemented,” party’s Leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge told reporters.

He nodded affirmatively when asked whether the remaining Congress members in the Lower House would boycott the House for five days as a mark of protest over the disciplinary action.

Congress whip of the party K C Venugopal said the remaining members were most likely to boycott the House and discussion were on with other opposition parties.

Meanwhile, the TMC and the AAP said they will boycott the House to express the solid arty toward the suspended members.

    I believe that 'Emergency imposed in congress rule' was actual black day for democracy.

      It is best day of Democracy. People not respecting our tax money should be thrown out of parliament. They don't have any rights even to seat in opposition. Next time you come to ask for vote. You won't even get these 45 seats.

        Democracy can't be defined by person who has put India on the back foot for last 60 years, every time defining their ways and leading India towards it. For last 5-6 Days they are not allowing to let the parliament work and do what is good for the country .

          This is a gold day in parliament - Hope the treasury bench will do some business now sans empty opposition benches who will like a rabble rouser keep on empty sloganeering.
