“Bills after Bills are being passed in Parliament in the din. This is not the way to run the Parliament,” says senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi while addressing the reporters at Vijay Chowk, the last point of the march by Opposition MPs to demand the revocation of 12 Rajya Sabha members’ suspension.
“PM doesn’t come to House. We are not allowed to raise any issue of national importance. It is the unfortunate killing of democracy,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Rahul went on to say: “A minister killed farmers. PM is aware of it. Truth is that 2-3 capitalists are against farmers… These MPs were not suspended by the Rajya Sabha chairman or Prime Minister but by the power that wants to steal farmers’ income. PM and the chairman are just implementors.”
As Opposition members trooped into the Well of the Rajya Sabha and raised slogans demanding that the suspension of 12 MPs be revoked, House chairman M Venkaiah Naidu adjourned the proceedings till 2 pm.
