Six Cong MPs Suspended From LS Over Gau Raksha

The Lok Sabha members shouted slogans before trooping into the well of the House. They also tore papers and threw them at the Speaker.

New Delhi: Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Monday suspended six Congress MPs following the ruckus they created in the House over gau raksha.

Those suspended for “improper behavior” are Gaurav Gogoi, K Suresh, Adhir Rajan Chowdhury, Ranjeet Ranjan, Sushmita Dev and MK Raghavan. Their suspension will last for five days.

Earlier during the day, the Congress members entered the well of the House demanding a discussion on atrocities being committed under the garb of gau raksha.  They also raised slogans against the Narendra Modi Government’s attitude in dealing with the issue.

Some of the members even tore papers of Lok Sabha Secretariat staffers and threw them towards the Chair, prompting slogans “shame, shame” from the treasury benches.

The Speaker, in her orders suspending the Congress MPs, maintained that the din was created despite her agreeing to a discussion on the alleged atrocities against Dalits and Muslims in the name of gau raksha.

As the situation in the House was not amicable for continuing the proceedings, Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House to Tuesday.
