As many as 12 Opposition Rajya Sabha Members of Parliament (MPs), including six from the Congress party, have been suspended from the remaining part of the ongoing Winter Session of the Parliament.

The MPs have been penalised  for “unprecedented acts of misconduct” and “violent behaviour” in the Monsoon Session of Parliament held earlier in 2021.

A number of Opposition MPs climbed on the officials’ table, waved black cloth and threw files when the Rajya Sabha began a discussion on farmers’ protest against farm laws on August 11. Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu broke down while condemning the ruckus.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament concluded with both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha adjourned sine die on August 11, two days ahead of the scheduled conclusion.

The Session that began on July 19 saw Opposition members stall proceedings in both the Houses demanding discussions on the Pegasus Project Report, farmers’ agitation, and price rise.

During the session, six TMC MPs were suspended for the day for carrying placards into the Well. Earlier, one TMC MP was suspended for the whole session for snatching papers from IT and Telecom Ministers and tearing it up.
