NEW DELHI: The suspension of opposition MPs continued to cast a shadow on Rajya Sabha proceedings with the House failing to transact any business owing to demands for revocation of the suspension, and the Chair refusing to heed the request. While the government insisted that the suspended MPs first express regret, the opposition ruled it out.

The RS witnessed five adjournments owing to disruption by the opposition and barely ran for 45 minutes. Amid the deadlock, leader of opposition Mallikarjun Kharge and Congress chief whip Jairam Ramesh met RS chairman Venkaiah Naidu with their demand for revocation of suspension of 12 MPs. Kharge said, “Suspension of MPs is in violation of the Constitution’s provisions. So, question of apologising does not arise.”
