Congress demands actions against Anurag Thakur for 'filming parliament proceedings'

Mallikarjun Kharge

Mahajan said the Question Hour is normally not suspended, according to the rules of the Parliament's Rules Committee which includes members of all parties and that she was only following the rules.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspended the lawmakers after they tore official papers and threw them at the chair and disrupted proceedings when the House was discussing the Bofors case and the recent incidents of mob lynching and cow vigilantism.

Those suspended are: Gaurav Gogoi, Sushmita Dev, Ranjeet Ranjan, Adhir Ranjan Choudhry, K Suresh and MK Raghavan.

Some of these members had picked up papers from the Lok Sabha secretariat staffers' table and had torn and thrown them, Mahajan said. "It is Okay. I am adjourning the House to allow members and ministers participate in the oath taking of the 14th President and other ceremonies", Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said, adjourning the proceedings till 3 pm.

The leaders of the Congress, Left, Trinamool Congress, RJD and JD (U) shouted slogans against the Narendra Modi government over the five-day suspension of the MPs and said they would take their protest inside the House as well.

Mallikarjun Kharge called the decision against his party members "harsh".

Congress members staged a sit-in near the Speaker's podium throughout the Question Hour as she refused to permit a discussion on the issue. She said all this had happened despite her agreeing to a discussion on the issue of alleged atrocities against Dalits and Muslims.

While the Opposition MPs attended the Central Hall function in full strength, they returned to raise the issue of suspension of MPs when the House reconvened. "Hon Speaker should reconsider", he tweeted.

Reacting to suspension of six Congress MPs from the House, Mr. Kumar said, throwing papers on chair is condemnable.

The Bill provides for prioritization of maritime claims and maritime liens while providing protection to owners, charterers, operators, crew members and seafarers at the same time.
