In a dramatic turn of events, the suspension of 79 Opposition MPs in a single day has been exacerbated by an additional 49 members facing same action today. This escalates the total tally of suspended MPs this session to an astounding 141, setting a new record for the highest number of suspensions in parliamentary history.
The new suspended leaders include NC leader Farooq Abdullah, Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor, Manish Tewari, Karti Chidambaram and NCP Supriya Sule.
