Winter Session of Parliament 2021 News: The opposition leaders termed the suspension “unwarranted and undemocratic”, and alleged that the action was in violation of all rules and procedures of the Upper House.

The opposition leaders termed the suspension "unwarranted and undemocratic", and alleged that the action was in violation of all rules and procedures of the Upper House.

Parliament Winter Session 2021 Updates: Members of Congress and other opposition party on Tuesday staged a walkout from Rajya Sabha after Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu justified the suspension of 12 MPs for the entire winter session of Parliament, saying they haven’t shown any remorse for their act of sacrilege of the House in the previous session in August. “Motion (for suspension of the 12 opposition MPs) was moved, it was approved, action is taken, it is final,” Naidu said as he rejected an appeal by the Leader of the Opposition and senior Congress leader M Mallikarjun Kharge to revoke the suspension. Naidu said he was not considering Kharge’s appeal as the suspended MPs have not shown any remorse, but on the contrary, justified their acts.

Lok Sabha proceedings were disrupted for the second day in the ongoing Winter session as protests by opposition parties over farmer issues lead to repeated adjournments on Tuesday. Proceedings of the Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day on Tuesday as the opposition parties had staged a walkout in the morning and the government wanted a discussion on the Dam Safety Bill, 2019.
