Alleging a “complete purge” for the passage of “draconian bills” without meaningful debate in Parliament, the Congress said that the BJP MP, who facilitated the entry of two protesters into the Lok Sabha on 13 December, goes scot-free.
Congress leaders’ attack came soon after 49 Lok Sabha MPs were suspended from the House for disrupting proceedings on Tuesday, a day after 78 opposition members were suspended from Parliament.
Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge said the BJP government has adopted a “suspend, throw out and dulldoze” tactic to “destroy democracy.”
“We all know that key Bills like the Criminal Law Amendments, which unleash draconian powers and impede citizen’s Rights, are listed. Modi Govt does not want the people of India to hear out the Opposition, while these Bills are debated and deliberated,” he wrote on X.
In a post on X, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh underlined the suspension of Lok Sabha MPs Tuesday to allege that “a complete purge is being executed so that draconian bills are passed without any meaningful debate, and so that the BJP MP who facilitated entry of the two intruders into the Lok Sabha on December 13th goes scot-free.”
